The state of Telangana is slowly coming into the scramble of finding beds with oxygen cylinders and ventilators in state hospitals and also private hospitals. The second wave of covid 19 has been wreaking havoc in several other states regarding the same and now finally Telangana is the next to follow.The statistics released and the media statements by the government denying shortage is quite different from the reality of the requirement at the moment.
The current shortage is catching everyone off guard as even influential people in the media and other fields are also seen running from hospital to hospital to look for beds and several hospitals refusing them even though they have enough contacts with other influential people.With influential people having to face this issue of denial the people with no influence and normal people who travelled from other districts have been going through a much harder time. From driving through the city looking for bed to 100 mtr long queues for vitals people have really been battling it out for their lives. The number of people who have succumbed to this virus waiting in queues and outside hospitals is also rising not at a high rate but cannot go unnoticed.
On the other hand the Health Minister of the state Eatala Rajender Garu in his last press conference accusing the central government of partial allotment of vitals and injections also rubbished claims of oxygen shortage and bed shortage and is trying to bring hoaxers to notice. The government is clearly seen to be shying away from the reality and is asking people not to believe anything except the government statistics.
