Hanima Anand |Feb 03, 2020

A 17-year-old disabled boy in China has died alone in his house after his father and brother were sent away to be tested and quarantined for Coronavirus.

It’s reported that the unfortunate teenager lived in Hong’an County, Hubei province, 60 miles away from Wuhan where the coronavirus outbreak started.

The disabled boy was only fed twice in 6 days

He was confirmed dead in bed alone on January 29 when his father and brother were isolated in a quarantine facility 15 miles away. The 17-year-old-boy named Yan Cheng suffered from severe cerebral palsy, preventing him from moving independently.

Though Yan Cheng needed round-the-clock care to survive, all his family members couldn’t return home from the quarantine facility because they were suspected to be carrying the novel coronavirus.

The father had posted his plea on social media to ask the public to help.

“My eldest son has cerebral palsy, and can’t move his body. He can’t talk, he can’t look after himself”

“Without someone feeding him, and without a protective suit from the local authorities and hospital, I worry that my child can’t make it any longer.”

The local officials were alleged to feed Yan Cheng twice during the entire week. They planned to move him closer to his father for proper care but the boy died that afternoon.
