Shortage of Oxygen supply, 30 Thane patients shifted to another hospital
| Tuesday | 13th April, 2021
The civic body said fresh oxygen supply to the center was expected within a day.
Thirty patients had to be shifted from a COVID care center in Thane city to a nearby hospital as the stock of medical oxygen was getting exhausted, a civic official said on Sunday.
The move to shift the patients from Thane Municipal Corporation’s Parking Plaza COVID care center to Global Hospital on Saturday evening was taken to avoid inconvenience and disruption in treatment, he added.
In a release, the TMC said fresh oxygen supply to the center was expected within a day, but, as a precautionary measure, new admissions have been stopped for the moment. The TMC on Sunday appointed deputy municipal commissioner (Tax) Ashwini Waghmale as an officer in charge to coordinate the purchase, storage, and distribution of medical oxygen gas and Remdesivir injections, a release by civic spokesperson Sandeep Malavali said.
