MIRPUR (AJK) – In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir, medicos’ representative fora Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) on Monday said that hospitals in the Jammu Kashmir State were witnessing a surge in severe cases of Covid-19 infection.
In a statement issued by DAK in occupied Srinagar on Monday that reads “A few weeks ago, we had drop in number of severe cases, but over the last few days hospitals are seeing increase in number of seriously-ill Covid-19 patients, much like we saw last spring,” said DAK President and influenza expert Dr Nisarul Hassan, says a report reaching here Monday evening from across the line of control.
“Patients in large numbers are coming to various hospitals with severe bilateral pneumonia requiring oxygen, some needing intensive care and the support of ventilators to help them survive the respiratory distress. Our beds are full, oxygen points are occupied and we don’t have space in intensive care units,” Dr. Nisaar said.
“Patients are coming with bad lungs when it is difficult to salvage them. Not only the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions, but young people are coming with severe disease and some of them are dying,” DAK President said.
