Yogi ask officials to ensure sufficient medical aid for Covid patients

Lucknow, May 20 (UNI) As the number of deaths because of black fungus is rising, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked officials to ensure sufficient quantity of medical aids required for the treatment of this dread disease.
“Ensure adequate availability of all essential medicines by communicating with health experts regarding the cause and treatment of black fungus,” he said here on Thursday while adding that a letter should be sent to the Government of India requesting to increase the allocation.
He also instructed the officials to make sure proper treatment is being provided in every district including Lucknow and Meerut, where more patients infected with this deadly disease are found.
The CM has ordered to make arrangements at the hospitals on the lines of ICU to ensure top class treatment. These pediatric ICU beds with all the resources will be working as ‘Raksha Kavach’ in hospitals in every district of the state.
State Child Rights Protection Commission Chairman Dr. Vishesh Gupta informed that PICU ward will be established within a week in Pratapgarh (30 beds), Prayagraj (25 beds), Jalaun (10 beds) and Kaushambi (20 beds).
Dr Gupta also informed that the work of setting up PICU is underway on war-footing in Jhansi, Amethi, Mathura, Moradabad, Ayodhya, Gorakhpur, Meerut, Chitrakoot, Lucknow and Azamgarh.
Dr Salman Khan, a pediatrician at Dufferin Hospital in Lucknow, said that the decision of the Yogi Government to set up 50-100 pediatric beds in all the major cities has been found very effective in the treatment of children.
Dr Khan said that all the facilities have been provided in PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) for children above one month, NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) for children below one month and SNCU (Sick Newborn care Unit)- established at maternity hospitals.
These beds will be small in size and have railing on the sides. Severely infected children will be provided with treatment and oxygen.
