State Times NewsJAMMU: Expressing concern on total collapse of health system in GMC Jammu, during trying times of ‘COVID-19’, social activist Sukesh C Khajuria sought immediate remedial measures to safeguard people’s lives as Govt Hospitals are duty bound to extend world class medical assistance for preserving human lives.Highlighting total collapse of the health system in one of the most prestigious medical institution of Jammu region- Government Medical College, Jammu, which resulted in untold sufferings of patients as well as doctors, Sukesh C Khajuria alleged said that a large number of deaths of COVID-19 patients have taken place due to shortage of oxygen and ventilators in the prestigious institution. Expressing deep concern over deaths of large number of COVID-19 patients everyday due to oxygen shortage, he said that people responsible for such gross mismanagement should be taken to task.“120 ventilators are lying unused in the store for the past four months. 34-bedded High dependency unit has been completed but not made functional for last 3 months. Emergency drugs are not available and when a patient of heart attack reports to emergency, his attendants are asked to procure drugs from market as same are unavailable,” he alleged.Sukesh further said that situation of GMC Jammu could be gauged from the fact that all VIPs including Advisor R R Bhatnagar, DHS Dr Renu Sharma, BJP J&K President Ravinder Raina and bureaucrats prefer to go to private hospitals for medical needs than coming to Government institutions. “Central team sent by Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh was mere an eye wash and publicity stunt to befool people as nothing has changed on ground level,” he added.He further said that UT administration including LG Manoj Sinha should take immediate cognizance of prevailing dismal situation in GMC, Jammu and take to task the Principal for his utter directionless and inefficient handling of institution. He demanded action and registration of cases against all those involved in such disregard of human lives.
