Mumbai. Families of a patient suffering from coronavirus, admitted to a hospital in Nashik, were asked to take them to another hospital as oxygen would be supplied only for the next few hours. This is a living example of how bad conditions are due to Corona in Maharashtra. It is clear from this incident that the ever-increasing corona cases and deaths from it have had a very bad effect on the hospital services of the state.
Archana Vyavahare told NDTV that her mother has been in the hospital for the last 17 days and recently she has been shifted to a non-covid ward. His health deteriorated suddenly, after which the family received a call from the hospital in the morning. Vyavahare said, "It was informed from the hospital that they are running out of oxygen and will be able to walk only till evening. Therefore, we will have to take our mother to another hospital soon."
However, many hospitals refused to enroll a new patient and told the family that they wanted to save the oxygen available to them, so that the patients already admitted to them do not have oxygen deficiency. Vyavahare told NDTV, "We tried in all the hospitals in Nashik, but they refused to enroll a new patient. If we don't get oxygen, my mother will not be able to survive." According to the report, the doctors tried for more oxygen, but they could not succeed in doing so.
