New Delhi: Actress Kishwer Merchant has reacted to the death of 35-year-old actor Rahul Vohra from COVID-19 complications.

The actor on May 4, wrote that he is COVID positive and requires an oxygen bed in the national capital of the country as his oxygen levels are consistently dropping.
Main Covid Positive hu. Admit hu. Lagbhag 4 din se but koi recovery nahi. Kya koi aisa hospital hai ? Zaha oxygen bed…
Rahul, just a day before the virus took his life away, posted a helpless message on his social media handle, wishing that he had received a proper treatment.
“Mujhe bhi treatment acha mil jata, To main bhi bach jata tumhaara Irahul Vohra (If I would have gotten a proper treatment, I would have survived, your Irahul Vohra)”.
Mujhe bhi treatment acha mil jata, To main bhi bach jata tumhaara Irahul Vohra Name-Rahul Vohra Age -35 Hospital name…
