The oxygen crisis at JN Medical College at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) continues. The oxygen supply in the wards of the CCU and the intensive care unit of the cardiology department was also interrupted on Tuesday. For this reason, the respiratory crisis of 205 patients who are supplied with oxygen is steadily increasing here.Director Professor Shahid Ali Siddiqui said that somehow the medical college’s liquefied gas facility saved patients’ lives. If no oxygen supply is available for the next day or two, the situation may worsen.

According to principal professor Siddiqui, 60 patients are currently dependent on oxygen in the covid department of the medical faculty, while 145 patients are dependent on oxygen in the trauma center. He said that he had consulted senior officials from the county government about the situation. So far, only an assurance has been given, but no oxygen.
Senior Professor Shahid Ali Siddiqui said there was no supply of oxygen bottles until late Tuesday evening.

Our employees are currently working in very complex situations. We are waiting for oxygen. It should be noted that JN Medical College stopped supplying oxygen on Monday, and the crisis has continued since then.

Never seen a situation like this in a 35-year career: Principal
Headmaster Prof. Shahid Ali Siddiqui says that in his 35-year career he saw this situation in the country for the first time, not just in medical school, when people are gasping for breath. Until now, he had only heard and read of fictional stories and books that mentioned the epidemic and the complex situation that resulted from it.

But to see it for the first time. That makes his heart very sad. He is not in a position to treat patients better as they wish. He says the doctor can heal, but where to produce oxygen.

Patients wandering from one hospital to another
On Tuesday, patients migrated from one hospital to another due to lack of oxygen and beds. In the medical school, patients were seen returning due to the oxygen crisis. However, after the report on the CT scan was invalidated on Tuesday, a more complicated situation emerged in front of the patients.
