Twitter Becomes Go-To For Covid Resources In Hyderabad

Unlike Bangalore and Mumbai, the GHMC has not come up with any reliable online information centre, where every information regarding coronavirus can be found - like available beds, etc. This is forcing the residents of Hyderabad to resort to Twitter, asking and reaching out for help in the form of Tweets. 

Despite the state government proclaiming to be running a website containing the real-time availability of beds, the website is far from reliable, forcing the residents of Hyderabad to reach out to people on Twitter for help at the oddest of hours. Several volunteer groups have now cropped up on Twitter as a result of the situation, who keep calling hospitals to keep a tab on the availability of beds and Tweet the status of the same, along with the timestamp of when the data is collected, so that those in need would be benefitted. 

Experts stress the need for a monitoring committee involving government officials, medical experts and representatives of nursing homes and private hospitals, and the need for a hotline that people can reach out to for any help, including bed availability. Medical representatives are also stressing the requirement for a reliable source informing people of the availability and occupancy of beds, availability of oxygen, essential drugs, infrastructure, PPE kits in government hospitals and even testing. 

On the other hand, it is being said that beds are not being utilised properly in several hospitals, where beds are being given to those who do not require that level of care, resulting in the negligence of those who really need that kind of care. Experts believe that there need to be nodal officers who can make sure that something like this does not happen and believe that this kind of monitoring can be achieved if there is required political will.
