In a video message Dr Umesh Patel of Bundelkhand Medical College said, Dr Mishra's condition is critical as 80 percent of his lungs have been infected.
Dr Mishra's colleague appealed to people to come forward to help for the treatment of the doctor who treated hundreds of Covid patients in Sagar city since the outbreak of the pandemic last year. Dr Patel also appealed to authorities to help save Dr Mishra.
