Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 15: Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association Jammu has demanded lock down in Jammu and Kashmir for two more weeks and declaration of Narayana Hospital Katra as designated COVID-19 Hospital-cum Quarantine Centre.
The office bearers of Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association Jammu, held an emergent meeting today in which President Abhinav Sharma expressed concern over insufficient medical institutions designated for the purpose and lack of facilities for the patients in those institutions and also insufficient measures taken by the administration.
Taking note of total confirmed cases of Covid-19 infected persons surging to 55325 in U.T of J&K, with more than 900 deaths, the deadly disease has taken a turn for the worst and it is feared that cases have spiked due to community transmission and particularly in Jammu division of J&K U.T, which has during the last few days / weeks noticed exponential rise in the positive cases and more deaths per day than in the valley of Kashmir.
JKHCBA is seriously concerned about the insufficient infrastructure, medical officers, paramedical staff and sanitization in the so called premier medical institutes, i.e. Govt. Medical College, Jammu, Govt. Medical College, Srinagar and hospitals associates with these two Medical Colleges, Chest Disease Hospital Jammu, District Hospital Gandhi Nagar, Psychiatric Hospital Jammu and few other Covid-19 designated institutions which are not able to cope up with the rush of rising positive cases, and most of time, the suspected positive cases enter the Govt. Medical Institutions, they are not being attended to properly due to aforesaid insufficiencies.
The JKHBA has taken it very seriously that even the lives of medicos, para medicos and health workers are not safe in the medical institutions which are available in U.T of J&K, therefore, U.T Administration is required to immediately and forthwith upgrade the existing COVID-19 designated institutions and to create more such institutions in order to save the lives of doctors, para medicos and health workers and in particular the poor strata of the society, who have no say in the corridors of the power and are left at the mercy of almighty.
JKHBA is much concerned about the worsening Covid-19 condition and demands that in order to contain the disease, all the private hospitals existing in the U.T of J&K, specially in Jammu division and in particular the Narayan Hospital Katra be declared as Administrative Quarantine Centre/ designate COVID- 19 hospital and be opened and available to the general public as well, instead of accommodating only the VVIPs, inasmuch as, even poor citizen has a fundamental right to life which is enshrined under Article 21 of the Constitution of India, which does not create a distinction between a poor and a rich / VVIP.
The impression gathered by the general public that the Narayan Hospital is meant to accommodate only rich and VVIPs is required to be dispelled with by the Administration, by opening up this Institution to the public at large at this critical hour of history.
