Abstract

In the whole world, the SARS-CoV2 pandemic has vigorously shaken humans and their lungs as well. The first case of COVID-19 in India was reported on 30th January 2020, and so far, 9,644,529 cases have been recorded with 140,216 deaths. Focusing mainly on ending this pandemic, we all have somehow ignored the basic rights of patients who are exploited in broad daylight. With no proven medicines and uncertain evidence about the vaccine, the world is moving up each day losing their loved ones. Despite losing their loved ones, they are not allowed to follow the last rites of their religion. People are dying due to scarce resources and people have nothing to do but watching worse happening to them. Due to the fear of getting infected with this deadly virus Telemedicine gets boosted all over the world, which also somehow exploiting one’s right. People with other medical histories are not getting proper treatment which makes these people suffer more in this pandemic.
