Sisters Hema, left, and Selina Ragoo.

It’s a story of love and loss. Hema Ragoo made the ultimate sacrifice, nursing her family back to health after they got infected with covid-19 last month. But sadly, five weeks after the first infection, Hema got covid-19 and died at the Augustus long hospital. Our senior reporter Radhica de Silva had been in touch with Hema these past few weeks as she fought valiantly to save her family. Now that she has died, Hema’s family wants citizens to take covid-19 protocols seriously and stop spreading infections.
