    RIP, Shreya Rai. It is hard for her husband and all her loved ones to lose a young seven-month pregnant woman. I remember when I was working in Dubai in 1977 where my friend lost his wife in a car accident. He was luckily saved but his life was not like before. I went through many comments in this issue which is ridiculous and hurt the sentiments of the deceased family members.

    Very sad. May her soul rest in peace. Take this incidence as example all those who neglect the precaution to be taken to prevent COVID 19. Prevention is better than cure as well as death.

    Dear All enough is enough. Please stop all type of political, personal/egoistic comments in this regards at this time of sorrow. A young life is no more along with unborn baby. Please sympathizes & give courage the grieving family and her beloved husband. As all of us know, there is no medication for covid19 other than self immunity. Hospitals around the world are doing the same “watch and try" serious patients are put on ventilators to supplement the oxygen level in the blood. So don’t blame the Country and their medical facilities. May her soul Rest in peace. Almighty Lord gives strength and courage the family member to bear the tragic loss of their loved one.

    It seems people are arguing about quality of hospitals and doctors in gulf Kingdoms. If people's immunity is not working then no medicine or doctors anywhere in the world can save or prolong their life. In most developed nations their diets that consists of processed foods which lack nutrition is the prime reason for simple diseases are taking heavy toll on their lives. Corona wasn't taking any lives from many decades but polluted environment is making it as dangerous but data proves only 0.003% are at risk. The challenge of foreign doctors is still open for anyone including scientists and doctors to prove it caused death and get $ 2& half million. Rest in peace Shreya.

    Sangam, Exactly you are right, but cant pick up mistakes and question against authoritarian governments while residing there, This is the difference between authoritarian rule and democratic countries . Even journalists to censored to publish news that not favored them . Just google it that how Jamal Khashoggi murdered and dismembered for questioning the government and daring news

    You talk insane. UAE and Saudi Arabia are taking care of the citizen very well so as all the middle east countries. The systems are very good and even the Europeans/westerners are not going back to their Country, as these places are taking care of the citizens very well.

    The Govt of India should track Covid deaths of its citizens in the gulf region. The authorities here could be using Indian patients as Guinea pigs for testing vaccines. Also the efficiency of the doctors and health workers in this region is questionable, though these countries project themselves with glitter and color ,they lack basic human traits which we see in common poor people in India.

    Well the medical facilities here are really good. UAE has good hospitals.Nobody is forced to take the COVID vaccine here in Dubai. Any one can die of COVID, young and the old. I had nighmares in Mangalore getting treated for my ailment and found the right doctor here (Haematologist) A doctor who was positive in life, unlike the one that i met back home.And people who have preconditions have to be extra careful and people here follow protocols of wearing mask. Tell me how many people back in Mangalore are wearing mask in public. India looks like is COVID free and people who travel and arrive have to quarantine themselves 14 days. Hippocratic society maintaining double standards back home. Question yourself now.

    Rodney , all this while i stayed in UAE , i dint get infected with covid. When i landed here , the casual approach was shocking, No masks at all. I was going to stay here just for 3 weeks and ended up getting covid 2 days before my flight due to someone else's negligence .

    AG, This is the opinion of every one. Those who are come from abroad or other states, really get surprised at the people for not wearing masks. Other day, i too travelled towards kinnigoly side, not a single person in the bus as well as in kinnigoly area wear mask. On inquiring they say, its required in Mangaluru and not here. When i visited the some shops, staff over there look at us strangely...Even, two of our friends, about to go back to dubai are suffering from covid with the symptoms like rashes, cough, weakness and so on.....WHY WE ARE NEGLIGENT? One of my friends in kerala (kottayam) says, there will be a fine of Rs. 500/- for not wearing mask....and she says there cases are less but more in Calicut, Kasargod side close to our border...why rules are so liberal here in Mangalur? When our nagarpalika will be awakened???Concerned officials please look into the matter...stop watching the vidros those got viral...

    Rodney, Dubai, ... 'Nobody is forced to take the COVID vaccine here in Dubai', but those haven't taken COVID vaccine are compelled to do the PCR test every week with their own money in UAE !!!!!!!! Why a small country like UAE is reporting more than 3000 + cases and 15 + deaths daily even though it was following very strictly COVID restrictions since the beginning of pandemic ????

    All my friends in UAE managed to get vaccine without any problems. The hospitals are one of the best and the doctors are not cut-throat chores like in India. It is easy to enter hospitals in India but coming out is always a big question mark. I have personally experienced it and I dread going to the hospitals without having a huge bank balance! It is true even with best treatment, if the time has come, it is not possible to save the life of a person. Shreya rest in peace.
