Actress Amyra Dastur on Saturday shared a social media note talking about her father's experience with Covid-19. She says she'll never forget the feeling of utter terror and helplessness. Amyra Dastur: I Am Happy To See Where My Career Is Going
Amyra posted a string of pictures with doctors and healthcare workers. Alongside the image, she wrote: "My father was admitted into hospital on the 12th of May 2021. What started off as fever and a cough developed into pneumonia caused by covid (even though all his tests were negative). His O2 dropped and his body began deteriorating to the extent he had to be shifted into the ICU. It was touch and go over that weekend."

Amyra then spoke about violence against doctors. "I just want to end this post by requesting everyone not to harm doctors or nurses. As someone who's been on the other side, seeing their loved one almost taken from them, I can only try to imagine the pain some families have gone through. I can't imagine what I would've done if I lost my father but attacking doctors and nurses surely isn't fair."
She concluded: that they truly are working their hardest and they need our support.
