Q. Considering the current situation, what would you like to say?

The situation across the Country has become worse since 1 month. This is challenging for all of us. We had around 135 cases in GMC of covid which has exceeded to 325 whereas CD Hospital had maximum 80 patients during self isolation and within last 24 hours, 40 more patients have been admitted. Every patient comes with a different symptom.

The last wave affected senior citizens with diabetes or other problems but the second wave is affecting our youth. Since morning we have admitted 15 patients, all with severe disease. No one has a mild disease. Our senior generation has got vaccinated and is a little protected from the virus. But the youth is prone to it.

The virus spreads through mutation. Every virus is different when it transfers from one person to the other. How reliable are the medicines and vaccines is a big question! Still the vaccines are doing their job of saving us. We haven’t made any medicine which can cure corona. It’s just symptomatic treatment like general medicines, vaccines and oxygen which is still working for us.

The only way to prevent the pandemic right now is covid appropriate behaviour. Social distancing, wearing masks and following all the guidelines. We partied after January and avoided wearing masks, that’s where we went wrong. Don’t know when this pandemic will end but the next few days are going to be dangerous for Jammu.

Q. How is the condition of the 40 patients admitted in the CD Hospital and how is their treatment going on?

We started admitting patients at 10 am yesterday morning. Our first patient was 75 years old and was dependent on 70% oxygen saturation. When we shifted him in the ward and started with the treatment, unfortunately he succumbed to death. At present, we have 48 patients with severe disease and high oxygen flow. But we are trying our best to give them the best possible treatment.
