Globally, the coronavirus continues to wreak havoc as the figure of infected people crossed a million. India had 10,000 confirmed coronavirus cases until 14th April, 2020 and the death toll climbed to 350. In J&K, the total infected people as on 14th April, 2020 stands at 275 with more then 200 cases reported from Kashmir.
While COVID-19 is not a challenge unique to Kashmir, the quality of healthcare and insufficient infrastructure is a perennial problem.
Suhail Naik, president of Doctors Association of Kashmir (DAK), in an interview to a local newspaper said that though the Jammu and Kashmir administration has acted swiftly to spread the ‘stay at home’ message, the state’s health infrastructure is not enough to cope with a COVID-19 emergency, should it arise.
“The health infrastructure in Kashmir is overburdened and it can’t take the extra load and will crumble,” said Naik.
Samia Rashid, the Principal of Government Medical College, Srinagar, however, claimed that they have enough ventilators to meet an exigency. India’s health ministry has promised 40 high-end ventilators by the end of this month (March, 2020) though the medical college did not have sufficient manpower to run the machines, she said.
A March 2018 health department report paints a gloomy picture of the facilities in J&K saas Trust
While the private sector accounts for 72% of healthcare services in rural areas and about 79% in urban areas in the country, in Jammu and Kashmir, nearly 97% of the healthcare needs of the 14.3 million population of J&K are met by public health institutions.
The doctor to patient ratio in J&K is amongst the lowest in India. “Compared to the doctor-patient ration of 1:2000 in India, J&K has one allopathic doctor for 3,866 people against WHO (world Health Organization) norm of 01 doctor for 1,000 population,” the report says.
Under the given situation, it becomes imperative for all us to provide the best possible facilities to our frontline workers who are facing the pandemic head on. As we all aware that the health safety gears such as PPE, face shields etc are already short in supply and their consumption has exponentially increased. To mitigate the situation, Ehsaas International proposes to augment the supply of essential health safety gears required by the frontline workers on daily basis. Furthermore, the medical experts have adequate supply of oxygen must be ensured in the Covid and other health facilities for Covid-19 patients requiring critical care
Since 22nd March, 2020 onwards, Ehsaas International has been supplying 500 PPEs(Personal Protection Equipments) , 3000 triple layered face masks on daily basis to the District Disaster Management Authority (DDMA). The said equipment is being developed as per the quality standards approved the local health authority (Covid Committee) and as per specifications put forth by MoHFW, DGHS (Emergency Medical Relief) are being delivered by DDMA to various quarantine centres and hospitals across Kashmir.
In this continuous development and supply chain process, services of 270 skilled, semi skilled professionals, 30 volunteers and 15 technical institutions are being utilised every day to develop and supply the critical PPE and face masks. In order to cater to the ever-growing demand of health equipment, Ehsaas International has also collaborated with J&K Skill Development Mission to utilise their resources / training centres/certified professionals to develop health safety gears equipments from locally procured non-woven Polypropylene material.
The ground situation is alarming in J&K along with the rest of the country as India has just entered the stage 3 of the pandemic, foreseeing the steep rise of infected cases and the already depleted reserves of medical equipments & other health safety gear kits , Ehsaas International is planning to enhance its rate of development and subsequent supply of health safety gears; Apart from development, procurement and supply of medical equipments, Ehsaas International is also trying to provide essential medicines and food kits to below poverty line people who are not in a position to afford food and medicines because of the lockdown caused by the pandemic.
