He voluntarily underwent quarantine.
He missed his last chance to see his father.
He chose safety over attending the funeral.
This story was inspired by a real-life incident. A man had travelled to his native place from a foreign country. His father had been in a critical state which was the reason why he made the trip. However, he passed away when his son landed. And the son voluntarily went up to a quarantine facility and checked himself in, despite knowing the fact that doing so will mean that he will miss the funeral. But he didn’t want to put anyone’s life at risk just so that he could see his father once again.. for one last time! In an even more sad twist of fate, his result came back negative after the 14 days of quarantine. My heart breaks at the very thought of all that this young man had to go through! 😦
