It’s the presence of children in the isolation ward that brings tears to the eyes of Lama Thupstan Chogyal, 49, president of the Ladakh Heart Foundation. “These children should be playing and enjoying life in the open, under the open sky. And here they are. Their cries are heart-wrenching,” says Chogyal.
Three children—aged two to two-and-a-half years—belong to a family of eight who have been quarantined in the LHF after two members tested positive for coronavirus, especially a 68-year-old-man from Chuchot village, around 20 km from Leh, who had returned from Iran on February 26 and developed symptoms of COVID-19. Thereafter, the typical, centrifugal arc
of infections was inevitable.
