Coronavirus Cases Spike In Bihar Due To Inadequate Healthcare Facilities
COVID-19 patients in Bihar blame hospital authorities for their continuous negligence and improper services.
The COVID-19 cases in India are increasing rapidly and this is causing a lot of pressure on healthcare infrastructure. According to recent reports, Bihar is battling with spiralling COVID-19 cases and the state is unequipped with necessary healthcare facilities. Coronavirus patients are unable to get proper ambulances and they also claim that hospitals are not providing adequate service. The Bihar government had created the biggest COVID treatment centre at the Nalanda Medical College Hospital (NMCH) in Patna. However, NMCH is running out of beds and patients seeking treatment here are being referred to the Patna Medical College Hospital (PMCH).
Even though Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has imposed lockdown till July 31, Coronavirus cases are increasing in the state. Several patients even allege that they managed their own oxygen cylinders as no assistance was provided by hospital authorities. Some even claim that they had to wait for hours due to the negligence of hospital workers.
