Trilochan Manna, 58 yr old ambulance driver of a pvt hospital. Driving since last thirty years but ten years in ambulance. Carrying covid patients for the last two months.
Wife and an unmarried daughter is waiting for him at home who dont want him to work any more. Since Trilochan is the only bread earner in the family, Rs15000 per month is quite a thing so what if he has to work 24 hrs every alternate days. He takes all the precautionary measures while he carries a covid patient in his ambulance, wears PPE and sanitises himself after every single trip. PPEs are very suffocating but he never takes risk as he is more worried about his family. “What will happen to them if I get infected ?” said Trilochan.
