COVID-19 infected patients with oxygen cylinders sitting in the lawns of Chest Diseases Hospital at Bakshi Nagar reminded of horrific scenes of lack of oxygen supplies in various hospitals of the country, creating panic among the people in Jammu.
Eyewitnesses said that it was unfortunate that a number of COVID-19 infected patients were made to sit in an open area with oxygen cylinders.
It was alleged that the patients were sitting in the lawn with the oxygen cylinders since the hospital’s intake capacity was over.
However, the hospital authorities declined the allegations.
“The COVID-19 infected patients first come to CD Hospital for their screening and were shifted to other hospitals for further treatment,” said an official, who wished not to be named.
