Many lives lost as ICUs in Thoubal hospital paralyse: Meghachandra

Imphal: MLA K. Meghachandra has urged Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh to ensure that the ICUs are functional in Thoubal District Hospital.

Thoubal District Hospital, which is a 100 bedded hospital, has been equipped with ICUs, ventilators, anaesthesiasts and other doctors. Tragically, the ICUs are not functioning. As a result, many lives are being taken away due to Covid owing to the absence of functioning ICU facilities in the district, Meghachandra said.

Meghachandra ‘strongly’ demanded for immediate functioning of ICUs in the district hospital to save the human lives from the second wave covid pandemic in the state.

“The non-functioning of the ICUs facilities with ventilators, in presence of doctors and staff, has taken away many lives in covid pandemic in the district,” he said.

He tweeted, “I urge Hon’ble CM @NBirenSingh to ensure the immediate functioning of ICUs in Thoubal District Hospital, which has 5 out of 7 sanctioned ventilators, anaesthesiasts, doctors & staff, to save lives from covid pandemic. Non-functional ICUs has taken away many lives.”

It is learnt that out of seven ventilators which were sanctioned for Thoubal District Hospital, there are only five ventilators in the hospital. The two ventilators are said to have been taken back by the state government, Meghachandra said.
