Hospital chief Rana Key said, ‘I appeal to both the Center and the state government for help. On the one hand, they have increased the number of Covid Beds and on the other hand they are not able to supply enough oxygen. How will we work in such a situation? ‘
He further said, if it is a Kovid tsunami and the government has implemented the Disaster Management Act, then they should act accordingly. We want to intervene immediately. The government is doing its best but perhaps it is helpless itself but then they should accept this and the number of patients to be admitted should be reduced.
