Infrastructural deficiencies in healthcare sector to be addressed on war-footing: Apni Party

Srinagar: Apni Party (AP) President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari in a statement on Friday said that the second wave of Covid-19 has wreaked havoc in various cities in the country that were supposed to be having adequate medical facilities available for its residents. However, the situation has turned extremely grim, he lamented.

He viewed that there are serious concerns over the alleged infrastructural deficiencies in the healthcare sector, particularly the insufficient oxygen supply in hospitals amid rising cases of COVID-19 in Jammu and Kashmir. He said, AP administration must dispatch medical teams to various hospitals to take cognizance of the situation.

'If an outbreak of such a magnitude takes place in J&K, I fear that the fatalities will be much higher because our medical facilities are meager in comparison with Delhi or other states in the country,' he cautioned.

Bukhari said that immediate pre-emptive measures are imperative to tackle the situation beforehand and the administration must dispatch medical teams to various hospitals to take cognizance of the situation.

'The administrative preparations to face any eventuality need to be made as soon as possible. Today's complacence can have serious repercussions for tomorrow. Medical facilities particularly oxygen cylinders, ventilators, COVID-19 special ambulances and drugs like Remdesivir must be made available in all hospitals across Jammu and Kashmir without any further delay,' he demanded.
