Mumbai: The incidence of coronavirus is increasing in the state. Concerns are being raised as the threat persists. The threat of corona remains in Mumbai as well. (Coronavirus in Mumbai) The number of patients is constantly increasing. Currently the number of beds is declining. It has also decided to suspend the corona vaccination program for the next three days from today. Therefore, Mumbai Municipal Corporation has decided to purchase 200 Ventilators in view of further increase in the number of corona in the future. So the threat of corona appears to be permanent.
Considering the need for ventilators due to the increasing number of coronary patients, the Mumbai Municipal Corporation has decided to purchase 200 ventilators. The tender process for the purchase of 100 ventilators has started, now it has been completed and the proposal will be put up for approval by the Standing Committee soon. These ventilators will be provided to Covid Hospital and Covid Centers.
After the first wave of corona subsided, the second wave showed stress on the health system as it did not focus on improving the health system. The growing number of corona sufferers has become a matter of concern. The number of coronary heart disease patients has been on the rise since February this year. More than 80 per cent of the total patients in Mumbai have no symptoms. The majority of these patients have been quarantined at home. However, patients with mild symptoms are more likely to have a sudden deterioration in their health, so they decided to purchase 200 ventilators, recognizing the need for more ventilators in the future.
At present, about 10 per cent of patients in Mumbai are in need of treatment. Some of these patients have been admitted to private as well as municipal Kovid hospitals due to critical condition. This has increased the demand for ICU beds and ventilators. More ventilators are being purchased accordingly. A three-year warranty period and maintenance for the next five years will cost Rs 16.77 crore on the purchase of ventilators.
