The second wave of the coronavirus has jolted India. Across the country, there have been several new coronavirus cases that have been emerging and it has created an issue of shortage of oxygen cylinders. During these times, social media has come to great use as people have been able to spread their word and ask for help.
Famous Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, who has been providing help to poor people across the country since the first wave of the pandemic, helped Indian cricketer Suresh Raina on Thursday when the latter came out asking for help for one of his family members.
The incident happened when Suresh Raina posted a tweet from his official Twitter handle in which he stated that there was an emergency need for an oxygen cylinder for his aunt in Meerut city of Uttar Pradesh. He revealed through the tweet that she is 65 years old and that she has been hospitalized due to a severe lung infection.

Taking to Twitter, Raina wrote, “Urgent requirement of an oxygen cylinder in Meerut for my aunt. Age – 65. Hospitalised with Severe lung infection.Covid +. SPO2 without support 70. SPO2 with support 91. Kindly help with any leads.” He further tagged the hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath.
After just over half an hour, Raina received a ray of hope from Sood. In a reply to his tweet, the actor asked the details of the patients and said that he will get it delivered to the needy. He also called Raina his ‘bhai’, which translates to “brother” in English. The actor has previously shared posts regarding the Indian cricketer.
When Raina announced his retirement from international cricket, Sood shared an emotional post for him on Instagram. The actor at that time stated that he felt that the Indian cricket team has never been the same since Raina has retired. The left-handed batsman was seen recently in action though, during the Indian Premier League 2021, which got suspended midway due to the rising cases of COVID inside the bio-bubble.
