DM had to come to admit the patient himself
There have been emergency-like situations in hospitals due to the outbreak of Corona infection in Agra. Patients are suffering due to lack of admission in government and private Kovid hospitals. The DM himself had to come to the hospital to get a patient admitted. In another case, the CMO had to call twice in hospitals till the patient was admitted. Agra CMO Dr. RC Pandey told that I had called for a patient Rajpal. There were full beds. The patient is admitted elsewhere. There is problem with increasing the case. More beds are being increased in SN Hospital.
Can’t get help from Kovid control room
Collector Prabhu N. Singh said that serious patients are being admitted. If the disease is not serious, then people should seek treatment at home isolation. Instructions have been given to IMA, CMO regarding patient recruitment in private Kovid hospitals. But as the number of infected is increasing in Agra, the arrangements for Kovid management are collapsing. The Kovid control room, which started three days ago, could not help more than 20 patients. The 24-hour helpline number remained busy for 12 hours. Even after putting the phone 10-10 times, the phones are not getting up. There is a complaint that the phone number of the Kovid control room set up in the Municipal Corporation Smart City Command Center is either busy or does not wake up.
Life saving devices are also not available for serious patients in 34 private Kovid hospitals due to the oxygen crisis in Agra. More than 350 nasal cannulas, bipedes, ventilators have been shut down due to non availability of high flow oxygen gas in 34 Kovid hospitals. The patient is being given oxygen directly from the cylinder.
