Despite suffering from mild Covid conditions the CM KCR has been monitoring the situation in the state and especially in Hyderabad from time to time.
The situation in rural areas is better than in the cities and towns.
The Telangana Government is also trying to avoid oxygen shortage, there was a possibility of the State facing a problem if the current situation continued.
Hyderabad is a cosmopolitan city, patients from different parts of the State as well as adjacent Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Chhattisgarh come to the city for treatment. Hence, oxygen shortage can crop up if the current situation continues any further.
Right now the Oxygen is being provided only to patients who genuinely require it since it can’t be purchased immediately. The doctors are having apprehensions that the Oxygen stocks may run out quickly.
KTR is negotiating for Remdesivir injections. The Government is taking all possible measures to check black-marketing of injections and procured three lakh doses of Remdesiver.
