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.
