Centenarian Massa Singh, a Dalit resident of Dyal-Shahabpur village in Tarn Taran district, is the oldest person in the region to have emerged victorious in the fight against Covid-19.
Will instil hope in other patients
We are extremely encouraged by his recovery. This will further instil hope in other Covid-19 patients. — Dr Anoop Kumar, Tarn Taran Civil Surgeon
Singh says he got stranded during the lockdown while visiting Takht Sri Hazur Sahib, Nanded. “I returned on April 28 and learnt I had contracted the virus on May 6. I was shifted to the isolation ward of Guru Nanak Super Speciality Hospital, Tarn Taran. I didn’t lose hope and followed my daily ritual of reciting Japji Sahib and mool mantar. It was with the doctors’ help that I could recover in 12 days,” he says.
Singh, who claims to be 100 years old, says he is witness to the mass killings during Partition. He says: “I saw death at Kasur Nullah, where thousands of bodies were dumped. Now, Covid-19 is claiming thousands of lives across the world and we are helpless.”
Civil Surgeon Dr Anoop Kumar says Singh’s strong will power helped him in recovery and it will instil hope in other Covid patients.
