While trying to handle the second wave of the rapid spike of cases in Covid 19, the State of Telangana is also bracing up for the highly anticipated third wave, which is likely to come harder in India. Telangana government is under criticism for many of its measures to control the spread is now stacking up necessary resources like oxygen plants and hospital resources like ventilators that wreaked havoc in the second wave.
Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has announced that the state will be giving all the government hospitals liquid oxygen plants with almost a total capacity of 300 metric tonnes. Also, an additional plant will be set up in Hyderabad to meet the fast requirements and keep us from depending on other states for oxygen supply. The Chief Minister is reviewing the growing problems of government hospitals and is urging the people to avail of free treatment and readily avail medicines at government facilities instead of paying high bills at private hospitals.
After all that has happened, the government will now look to the charges against private hospitals for totally breaching the government order and tariff for covid 19 beds and resources, which is in full effect by all other neighbouring states since the order was first issued 11 months ago. Looking at the sudden rise of the new Black Fungal cases among covid 19 patients, the chief minister has urged the health experts to notice the trends closely and asked all hospitals to be ready to deal with the scenarios up in the following weeks.
