The director took to Twitter to share his loss with his followers
Filmmaker Kunal Kohli revealed that his maternal aunt has passed away in Chicago after an eight week long battle with coronavirus. The filmmaker said it was heartbreaking for the families to not be together in these testing times due to the pandemic. Kunal posted about this on Twitter on Saturday.
The director recalled how during the treatment, his cousin sister would go to the hospital, sit in her car "and pray for her mother."
Her daughter (my cousin sister) would go to the hospital, sit in her car in the car park & pray for her mother. As she wasn’t allowed inside the hospital. Said she felt close to her as she couldn’t see her. This is how harsh Covid is. This isn’t the way to go.— kunal kohli (@kunalkohli) May 23, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has killed at least 340,000 people worldwide and infected about 5.3 million, according to a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.
