Nashik: Corona has wreaked havoc in Nashik. In the last three days, 2284 new corona patients have been found. According to the report of District General Hospital, so far 4 lakh 5 thousand 735 people in the district have recovered from corona and gone home. At present, treatment of 5 thousand 344 patients is going on. So far 8 thousand 765 patients have died. While there are 3955 corona patients in the city but only 321 corona patients are undergoing treatment in the hospital.
In view of the threat of third wave, the Nashik Municipal Corporation is testing 3000 people every day. If we look at the current figures, the number of people infected with testing is 20.86 percent. This information has been given by Dr. Prashant Thete, Assistant Medical Officer, Municipal Corporation. The question is why the people of Nashik are turning their backs on the hospital and the COVID center.
most beds empty
8 thousand beds are ready in the Municipal Hospital and it has oxygen facility in 2200 beds. Bitco Hospital has the maximum number of 650 beds with oxygen. Similarly, a large number of beds are available in other hospitals as well. But in most places most of the beds are empty.
Why did the citizens turn their backs
Most of the corona infected citizens in Nashik are giving priority to get treatment by staying at home. Those who have got corona have quarantined themselves at home. are resting. Many people do not like to get treatment in public places. Along with this, they also want to avoid the bills of private hospitals ranging from thousand to lakhs of rupees. Therefore, in the third wave of corona, most of the patients are giving priority to stay at home and get treatment.
If such a large number of patients are being found and they are not getting admitted in the hospital, then it can be called a failure of the system. If this situation continues, then those who are treated at home can infect many other family members. Later this number will become a headache for the administration. People will have to instill confidence in the better treatment in the hospital.
