Comprehensive foreign media reported that due to the extreme shortage of medical resources, the outbreak of Indian hospitals like a “siege”, people outside want to go in, people inside want to come out.
An ambulance carrying patients with Coronavirus waits in long lines outside a hospital in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad on May 3rd, with many more continuing to join the growing queue. Many patients die even before they see a doctor because of a shortage of medical resources.
Indian patient’s family: My mother used to take oxygen at another hospital, but the doctor told her she needed a ventilator, I’ve been lining up here for an hour, there’s a long queue in front of me, I’m really helpless, I don’t know when it’s my turn.
And for those who can be successfully admitted to the hospital, many people still can’t feel comfortable receiving treatment and even want to escape from the hospital. At Sardar Patel’s care center, the patient, Sadanand, told the media that he had only seen a doctor twice in a week. At least five people have died around him, and the body of a patient in a bed next to him was removed hours after his death. Sadanand said he was so scared that he asked to be discharged or transferred to a place with more medical resources. “If my health deteriorates, it won’t save me,” he said. ”
