If the latest figures communicated in the fight against covid-19 are generally encouraging, they are nonetheless too high. The crisis is far from over and patients are still dying every day. Among these patients, health professionals who, until a few months ago, were “on the other side”, at the bedside of their patients. This is the case of Doctor Hemant Ravin Ramchurn, 62 years old.
Cardiologist at CHR Mons-Hainaut (Mons and Warquignies hospitals) since 1997, the latter contracted the virus while exercising his profession and remaining in permanent contact with his patients. After two months of struggle, he finally gave up on December 1. Since the announcement of his death, messages of condolence have been pouring in. All salute a human doctor, generous, patient and very attentive.
“Doctor Hemant Ravin Ramchurn died of a COVID-19 infection. He was hospitalized at Mons hospital before being transferred to the CHU Saint-Pierre in Brussels, at his request, in order to to be closer to his family “, explained the Jolimont group in a communication disseminated within the teams. “His death reminds us that healthcare workers are on the front lines and are paying a heavy price in the fight against the pandemic. “
His team, to which he was very close, also paid tribute to him. “He has been an outstanding member of the cardiology service of CHR Mons-Hainaut for over 22 years, the founder of the electrophysiology program, and an invaluable friend to all his colleagues. He has always been a true example of hard work, diligence and a true spirit of collegiality. “
And to continue: “During the pandemic, he volunteered to help COVID patients, while constantly working day and night to help those suffering from heart conditions. He never hesitated to offer his help and open his big heart to anyone who needed his support. A true doctor passionate about his profession, his love for helping others has only been surpassed by that for his family and children. “
At the dawn of the end of the year celebrations, this new death in the ranks of nursing staff sounds like yet another reminder: let’s be careful and respect the measures put in place to avoid other tragedies. “Behind each figure are people,” said Stéphan Mercier, general manager of the Jolimont hospital center.
