Vinay Vishal Hospital in Roorkee has been made Kovid Center. There are currently 85 Corona-infected recruits here. Oxygen was running out in the hospital late on Monday night. Oxygen ran out at half past one in the midst of an oxygen supply effort. About twenty minutes later, by the time oxygen arrived and the supply was smooth, one patient lying on the ventilator and four patients taking oxygen from the cylinder were traumatized. Hospital director Vishal Ghai said that many times oxygen costs more. Due to the possibility of oxygen problem on Monday night, Joint Magistrate Namami Bansal was informed at ten o’clock that the liquid oxygen is running out and the oxygen cylinder will not work.

Information about this was also given to District Nodal Officer Pallavi Gupta, but no response was received from the administration. Somehow oxygen reached in the night, but during this period the supply was interrupted for 20 to 25 minutes. Due to this, there have been five deaths in the hospital, which they are sad about. At the same time, Joint Magistrate Namami Bansal said that according to the demand daily, the hospital has been supplied two metric tons of liquid oxygen and more than 200 cylinders. Hospitals have been instructed to keep a 12-hour backup. Liquid oxygen is not in stock in the plants. It was reported on Tuesday morning that oxygen cylinders were also not sufficient. In such a situation, it is a serious matter and it has been recommended to the District Magistrate for investigation.

The hospital management was informed about the lack of oxygen, but there has been some delay in reaching oxygen due to technical reasons from the plant. Work has been started on how to increase backup in the hospital.

Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat has ordered a magisterial inquiry into the case of death of patients allegedly from lack of oxygen at a private hospital in Roorkee. The Chief Minister told Amar Ujala that after the matter came to cognizance, he has sought complete information about the case from the District Magistrate of Haridwar. He said that after investigation, the exact reasons will be known. Strict action will be taken at the level at which negligence will come to the fore. On the question of arbitrariness of certain hospitals and black marketing of medicines, the Chief Minister said that he had talked to Secretary Health and Secretary Health in-charge in this regard. They have been instructed to monitor hospitals.

Tell the hospital about the need for oxygen
DM C Ravi Shankar met the managers and officials of all Kovid hospitals online and discussed about oxygen supply. Also instructed that hospitals should tell their demand for oxygen in time so that there is no problem in the supply and the lives of Corona patients are safe.

On Tuesday, DM C Ravi Shankar held an online meeting with the managers and officials of all Kovid hospitals in the Roorkee region as well as the district. He discussed the supply of oxygen to the managers of the hospitals. Dr. Sanjay Kansal, CMS of Roorkee Civil Hospital, who was involved in the meeting, told that DM inquired about the supply of oxygen in Kovid hospitals. He said that at this time the cases of corona are increasing continuously. Patients are not able to get beds in hospitals. Most patients are in need of oxygen.

Many cases have come to light that people are dying due to lack of oxygen. However, there is currently no shortage of oxygen in the district. In such a situation, he has instructed that all the hospitals should upload the information about the amount of oxygen used by them till 4 pm on the portal so that oxygen can be supplied in time. Dr. Sanjay Kansal said that according to the instructions of DM, oxygen information has been uploaded on the portal of the department.

The production capacity at the Mangalore plant has been increased amidst chaos for oxygen in the Corona epidemic. 1000 oxygen cylinders are being manufactured here in place of 700 in 24 hours. The managing director of the plant says that if the administration provides them with a 20-tonne liquid tank, then this capacity will increase to between 2000 and 3000.

The Kumar Ispat Oxygen plant located near Gadarjuda village on Mangalore-Jhabrera road has increased production capacity in view of demand. Due to this, oxygen is easily available to the people coming to the plant. At the same time, due to increasing production capacity, the crowd of people has also started increasing. Rakesh Yadav, managing director of Kumar Ispat said that earlier he used to make 700 cylinders in 24 hours, while now 1000 cylinders are being prepared.

He said that if the administration provides a liquid tank of 20 tonnes, the production capacity will be increased from 2000 to 3000 cylinders per 24 hours. After this, no one will have to wander in Haridwar for oxygen and oxygen will be easily available in the plant. He said that the purpose of the plant is to save lives. He is doing everything possible for this. The administration should pay attention to this and a 20-ton liquid tank should be made available.
