Social bodies launch drive to collect oximeters from Covid survivors
| Tuesday | 4th May, 2021
The initiative followed after the civil administration appealed to the public to help the Health Department by providing pulse oximeters due to surge in Covid patients during the second wave of the pandemic.
The Mandi Ahmedgarh SDM Dev Darashdeep Singh had appealed to residents to cooperate with the administration and donate pulse oximeters after recycling kits once used by Covid survivors.
Now when the administration is facing shortage we request Covid survivors to return oximeters lying idle at their homes” the SDM said.
The Health Department owing to the ongoing shortage is either supplying Fateh kits sans oximeters or trying to recycle used pulse oximeters.
Azaz Ali coordinator for pursuing issues related with home quarantined Covid patients at the local Civil Hospital acknowledged the shortage of oximeters.
