It has been a scary situation out in the country wherein people are struggling for every breath they take. In such a crisis situation, all we need is some hope to overcome this crisis situation.

Amid this, there have been several heart-touching incidents that have reinstated people’s faith in humanity.

According to media reports, Sawant has been ferrying patients to and from the hospital along with taking all the precautionary measures including wearing PPE kit. Interestingly, he has been doing this noble service free of cost. “I drop off/pick-up patients from hospital for free. I'll continue this service as long as COVID wave will last,” he was quoted saying to ANI.
