Noted Malayalam filmmaker M. Padmakumar, known for big budget period movie like Mammootty starrer 'Mamangam', touted as most expensive movie produced in Malayalam and investigative thriller Joseph, hailed Kerala’s healthcare system.

His son, working in Paris, who was infected with coronavirus on March 23 has been recovered and discharged from Ernakulam government medical college hospital.

 

In a Facebook post, Padmakumar expressed love and gratitude towards the doctors, nurses and all other health workers who are dedicated to fight against the deadly disease.

“My son Akash and his colleague Eldho Mathew has been discharged from the government medical college after the successful treatment for Covid 19. Thanks and love to the doctors, nurses and all other health workers who are dedicated to fight against the disease. And my love to the Captain of the team our Honourable CM, Pinarayi Vijayan, our health Minister Shailaja teacher, district Collector S. Suhas and all... This is not just an expression of gratitude, also my pride about my state, my government which is number one among the world for leading and caring people very sincerely. A BIG SALUTE,” he said in FB post.

The youngsters were doubtful over the possible contraction of virus as they interacted with a virus suspected person in Paris.

They returned from Paris to Kochi on March 15. They reached Delhi on March 16 and landed in Kochi on March 17. Being asymptomatic they were allowed to go home. But they took extreme care to prevent chance for virus spread, in case if they are infected.

They didn’t even use the service of a driver or taxi car to reach home. Their relatives parked the car outside the airport parking area and the youngsters drove themselves to a separate house arranged for them.

The duo went into self isolation and stayed in the house till March 23 when they developed fever and shifted to medical college where they tested positive.

Since the youngsters didn’t have a single contact, there was no need to prepare the route map and trace contact list. The district collector and top health authorities complimented the imitable behaviour of the students.
