Bhubaneswar, Sept 27 (LocalWire): Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MLA Umakanta Samantaray today picked holes in the management of Coronavirus in hospitals in the state and pointed out lacuna in the healthcare system.
In his interaction with the media, he said that in the light of a spike in Coronavirus cases in the state, there had been glaring problems of lack of beds and ICU beds in hospitals for treatment of Coronavirus patients.
“The accusations of Opposition parties are not completely false and I can admit that. There is indeed a struggle of Coronavirus patients in getting ICU beds and beds in COVID Hospitals and we need to have more such facilities to cater to their demands,” he said.
Taking a clue from the ruling party legislator, Congress leader Taraprasad Bahinipati said that the Coronavirus healthcare in the state is in shambles.
“The MLA has admitted the real fact. But I think the party (BJD) make take action against him for speaking out the truth,” he said.
