Asif Mehdi, the son of legendary singer Mehdi Hassan, has been hospitalized after his health deteriorated on Tuesday. The singer is currently being treated at the Special Care Unit of a private hospital.
His family said that Asif Mehdi used to visit the hospital for dialysis but had to be hospitalized after his pneumonia worsened. He also got tested for COVID-19, however, his reports came out negative. Doctors said that his condition is out of danger and will recover soon, but they will keep him under observation.
The family has further requested the public to pray for his speedy recovery.
Earlier in April, Asif Mehdi’s family made an appeal for financial aid. His wife, Rubi told the media that they had sold out all of their assets, however, they were still unable to meet the expenditures as her husband has to undergo dialysis thrice a month.
“My family members are supporting me to meet the expenses of my husband’s treatment,” she said.
Asif Mehdi mentioned that he had visited the Governor House several times to seek financial assistance but didn’t get any positive response, adding that the financial assistance provided by the government proved insufficient.
We sincerely hope for his betterment and pray that he recovers soon.
