Filmmaker Kunal Kohli‘s maternal aunt passed away in Chicago due to COVID-19. Kunal made a series of tweets and informed how his maasi struggled for around eight-weeks and finally gave up. Explaining how bad the situation is and what coronavirus takes away is beyond imagination, the filmmaker said none of his family members could be in Chicago to support each other. He said the virus is so harsh that even his cousins – the aunt’s kids, were not allowed by the hospital to see the dead body.

Kunal wrote, “Lost my Masi to Covid after an 8 week struggle. In Chicago. We’re a large family that’s really close. We can’t be together at this time. This is as painful as the loss. Seeing my Mom Masi’s & Mama’s not being able to be together at this time is really hard” (sic). He added that his mother had four sisters and three brothers and none of the siblings could bid goodbye to his maasi. He also talked about the beautiful bond his mom and her sisters shared and how much everyone in the family got to learn from their bonding. He said COVID-19 could break that bond but it can’t break the love and the memories that they have preserved. The filmmaker said, “5 sisters. 3 brothers too, but sisters are diff.Their bond unbreakable. Only death could break it. They taught a family & everyone they touched the meaning of love,family,giving. Covid has been harsh to our family. Won’t break our love & memories. Miss you Masi” (sic).
