Jayanagar MLA Sowmya Reddy criticized the Karnataka government in a series of tweets earlier on Saturday, July 4. She sarcastically shared details of private hospitals treating COVID-19 patients in Bangalore, but was unresponsive and lacked infrastructure to deal with the increase in cases.
She encountered difficulties in the admission of critically ill patients. She criticized her problems and took them directly to CM’s office. Her tweet invites you to critically observe the current state of Bangalore.
As cases increase, Bangalore’s medical infrastructure collapses
The number of cases in Bangalore has been rising. The lack of medical infrastructure has already severely criticized the government. Despite the Sunday blockade and measures to dispatch certain major wards in the city under the blockade and tightening measures, Bangalore still accounts for 6,296 cases in Karnataka, killing 105 people.
A few days after the central government praised the country for controlling the spread of infectious diseases as a model to follow in the country, this alarming number is even more ironic. Another worrying fact is that the fact of recently joining a private hospital to help the government resist the spread of the disease has rejected admission and refused to treat patients. Recently, a 52-year-old man died in front of a hospital. Despite the symptoms of COVID-19, he was rejected by a 32-year-old.
Complaints come from all sides. Yesterday, a man died in the city waiting for an ambulance for 3 hours. Jayanagar MLA Sowmya Reddy spoke on Twitter about this matter, and she herself is facing a similar situation. She wrote that since 9 pm last night, she has been working hard to deliver the beds of seriously ill patients to the hospital, “After answering the phone at the hospital, they did not answer/turn off the phone if they said there was no bed/oxygen/ICU. Many requests, finally able to accommodate a critically ill patient. Trying from 9 pm. Too angry. The pitiful state of our medical care!”
She continued to publish a series of tweets, asking the government about its plans and infrastructure and its preparedness to respond to the crisis. She also pointed out how the city’s medical system collapsed in 6,296 cases without reaching its peak. In addition, she questioned why CM did not adopt MLA’s recommendations in the last two all-party MLA meetings.
Reddy finally pointed out that as an U.S. Legal Assistance Officer, she had experienced such an experience, so ordinary people in need are in a worse situation: “I am an U.S. Legal Assistance Officer, this is my experience. Imagine those who are not in contact The dilemma. Or pulling the rope. A 30-year-old man died of a concurrent illness two days ago, and I can continue, but I hope the government will unite their actions. We are with you! Now it’s us and the pandemic !!!”
The government has not responded to the allegations or the issues before them.
