Rohtak, May 3
The Haryana Government had launched a web portal covidharyana.in last month to provide the information regarding the availability of hospital beds for Covid patients across the state.
The portal shows that a number of hospital beds, including oxygen and non-oxygen beds, ventilators and ICU beds, are available in all districts of the state at any given time.
However, even the critical patients who reach the hospitals are told that there are no beds. The hapless family members and other attendants of the patients keep on wandering from one hospital to another, but most of them fail to get any bed.
Some patients lose their lives in their cars or ambulances while making rounds of government as well as private hospitals, leaving their families in a state of helplessness and despair.
“I have served at the PGIMS all my life, but if I require a bed at the institute today, I am not sure whether I will get it or not,” laments Dr Ranbir Singh Dahiya, a former professor of surgery at the Rohtak PGIMS.
Meanwhile, as per the government portal, 5,066 hospital beds, including 3,106 oxygen beds, 1,569 non-oxygen beds, 391 ICU beds and 244 ventilators, were available in Haryana at 7 pm on May 3.
