The story about a metal infuse that saved a life is one of those stories that’s worth telling in the midst of a global pandemic.
On December 18, 2017, a man in Pakistan, who was being treated for cancer, fell ill with pneumonia and was rushed to a hospital in the city of Peshawar.
He was rushed into surgery where a few days later he was declared dead.
The man, identified as Ahmed Qazi, was rushed from the hospital in a critical condition to the Karachi Institute of Medical Sciences where he died a few hours later.
The hospital staff initially said that Qazi had died from the pneumococcal infection that was sweeping the city and was being transferred to the same intensive care unit as other patients.
However, in an interview with Al Jazeera, the man’s family members revealed that Qazi was infected with a rare, highly pathogenic form of the bacteria called MRSA.
The MRSA strain is very rare and difficult to treat.
It’s also extremely dangerous and resistant to antibiotics.
According to experts, the chances of developing the MRSA bacteria in a patient are one in a million and that is just one case.
Qazi’s family was devastated.
Qazi’s mother, Rana Qazi was also severely ill with MS, but her son was not.
In a speech to the press, the Qazi family said, “I want to express my deepest gratitude to all the people who cared for my son, Ahmed Qazis condition and all the support that we received.”
Qazi, a 27-year-old engineer, worked in a company that was producing titanium for commercial use and had worked for years as a skilled labourer.
According the family, Qazi became ill in early December and was transferred to a ward at the Karachi Central Hospital.
The following day, he was admitted to the ward where he was placed in a bed with a COVID-19 test.
Qazis family said that he had been given antibiotics to fight off the infection and that they were in good spirits.
When the infection was finally diagnosed, he became a patient of the Karachi Infirmary and underwent several rounds of antibiotics, including three antibiotics administered intravenously.
He recovered in time to receive an IV line, and his condition was stable.
However on the same day, his wife, Rafiq Qazi – who is also an engineer – became very ill.
She was taken to a private hospital where she was transferred from the ward to another ward.
There, her condition deteriorated and she was pronounced dead on December 20, 2017.
The cause of death was ruled as MRSA infection.
But while the family of the deceased man were devastated, many people in Pakistan are not.
On social media and elsewhere, many have expressed their shock and sorrow.
The Pakistani Medical Association (PMCA) has condemned the hospital management for failing to treat Qazizi, who had no underlying health problems.
PMCA President Aziz Sadiq has called for an independent investigation into the cause of his death.
Pakistan has suffered from a pandemic that has left more than 1,400 people dead, of which over 3,000 are in hospitals.
The death toll is expected to rise further.
