In COVID-hit India, a 26-year-old doctor decides who lives and who dies
Rohan Aggarwal is 26 years old. He doesn’t even complete his medical training until next year. And yet, at one of the best hospitals in India, he is the doctor who must decide who will live and who will die when patients come to him gasping for breath, their family members begging for mercy.

"If a patient has a fever, and I know he's sick but he's not requiring oxygen, I can't admit him," said Aggarwal. "That's the criteria. People are dying on the streets without oxygen. So people who don't require oxygen, even if they are sick, we don't admit them usually," he added. "Another choice is I have an old male and I have a young guy. Both are requiring high-flow oxygen; I have only one bed in the ICU. And I can't be emotional at that time, that he is a father to someone. The young have to be saved."

He is unvaccinated: He was sick in January when shots for medical professionals were being rolled out, and then by February, he began to relax.
