In subsequent tweets, Singh shared his father’s health condition and mentioned that due to their financial situation, the family is unable to afford treatment at a private hospital.

He also attached his father’s medical reports.

Sonu Sood quoted Singh’s tweet and wrote, “We won’t let your father die brother. Message me your number directly on my personal Twitter id inbox. kindly don’t share on a tweet.”

After the tweet gained significant traction on X, the hospital tweeted, “AIIMS New Delhi has come to know about the patient who had registered in the Cardiology opd had some issues while waiting for evaluation. We called the patient/son @pallavserene on the phone number obtained from hospital records. We came to know that the patient is now in his village in Deoria, UP and is comfortable at home. He will be coming to AIIMS for further treatment whenever his father feels discomfort and currently doesn’t need any help. We have offered technical support. Immediately after the tweet, we gave them our helpline number by direct message on Twitter (X).”

The primary tweet, since being shared on December 4, has accumulated over 10.6 million views, and the numbers are still increasing. Many even took to the comments section of the post to share their thoughts.

Check out how people reacted to his tweet:

“1. Ayushman Bharat scheme can be used as FREE cashless medical insurance for up to 5 lakhs. Check with your state for eligibility and apply asap. 2. Medical insurance is one of the most important investments you must make for your family. 3. Crowdfunding is the last option,” posted an X user.

Another added, “Hi Pallav! Please drop a QR and attach your due bills/hospital deets. I’ll try to cover for your expenses to the best of my capacity and I’m sure more people will turn up to help you out. Let’s hope for the best, and my DMs are open. Wishing you strength in the meantime.”

“This is not just his story; every middle-class person has to face this; maybe after this tweet, he will get help, but what about the rest?? The government should focus on private and government hospitals for better treatment from a health and economic point of view,” expressed a third.

A fourth commented, “Pallav, I hope things work out for you. Faith moves mountains. Keep faith.”

“Stay strong, brother; your father will get well soon,” shared a fifth.
