Situation precarious but there is no need to unnecessarily panic. Director SKIMS

SRINAGAR, May 18: Director SKIMS Dr. A. G. Ahangar Tuesday said that SKIMS is fully geared to meet eventualities, but people too have to be ready to do their bit in combating Covid-19 pandemic.

Reiterating the do’s and dont’s for patient care as part of expert advice he emphasized need for Mass Vaccination Campaign which he termed the ultimate weapon to fight the deadly disease. “It is like fighting a “Third World War” by the medical fraternity and people at home rather than soldiers in the battle fields and we have to choose between vaccine or ventilator, vaccine or death, vaccine or famine.”

He said the situation is undoubtedly precarious but there is no need to unnecessarily panic.

He lauded healthcare workers at SKIMS who he said are working at all levels with dedication and resilience. The administration too is tirelessly and providing all facilities that the treatment may demand. He said high flow oxygen and low flow oxygen wards were set up at top priority without wasting any time to add to already available infrastructure & equipment and drugs are stocked up to meet the demand.

Pinning his hope in the wisdom of people Dr. Ahangar made a fervent appeal to people for further cooperation in sailing through the ongoing crisis without any unexpected loss of lives and any dent to our resilience. (KNT)
