Nowhere to isolate during Covid, this 18-year-old in Telangana spent 11 days on a tree
In Telangana’s Nalgonda district, an 18-year-old Shiva has set an example to fight against covid-19 and save his family members from infection. He has built himself a bed made of bamboo sticks fastened to the tree branches near his house in the village. Shiva wanted to stay away from his family members as there is a single room that includes the kitchen and sometimes even the toilet. He spent almost 11 days on a tree before being moved to an isolation center. Shiva has shared his remote village's struggle not to access healthcare centers, medication, and vaccines.
