State Times NewsJAMMU: The Association for Welfare of Senior Citizens (AWSC) has urged the Lt Governor to issue necessary instructions to concerned authorities for improving limping medicare facilities in J&K amid ongoing COVID-19 crisis for welfare people in general and patients in particular.In a press statement issued here J S Sudan, President AWSC said that medical services in Jammu require immediate attention as people are suffering a lot during ongoing crisis. “Few days back, even Advisor to Lt Governor R R Bhatnagar had visited the GMC Hospital to review the facilities but it seems that nothing has improved on ground level and COVID-19 patients are left at the mercy of God. In a recent case, which went viral on social media, an elderly patient was seen stuck up in an ambulance outside GMC, waiting for hours to get admission even after being referred by DH Gandhi Nagar, on an excuse that patient bed is not available,” he added.Sudan further said that we very well understand that due to sharp rise in number of corona positive patients in Jammu, shortage of beds was expected but why and where the authorities had been sleeping earlier? Why no preparation was made to create more facilities when it was being done all over the country, rather across the world, he questioned.The AWSC appealed to the Lt Governor and Advisors to take emergency measures for arranging more beds for corona positive patients, by making necessary arrangements in spacious banquet halls lying vacant or constructing emergency shelter hospitals through Army on war-footing basis to save human lives.If required, another lockdown of 15 days should be imposed in Jammu province forcing people to strictly follow the precautions for containing the rapid spread of COVID-19, he suggested.
