Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Monday requested Central government to give special attention on keeping the supply of medical oxygen smooth and also import the medicines and oxygen so that supply is not disrupted in the hospitals across the country.
Former UP CM’s statement came after the reports of inadequate supply of Remdesivir and medical oxygen for treating COVID-19 patients in the country’s largest state.
“In view of the acute shortage of coronavirus vaccine and oxygen in hospitals in various states of the country, I request the Central government to pay special attention on priority. For this if the vaccines need to be imported, the Centre should do it,” Mayawati said in a tweet.
“Apart from it, the coronavirus is now affecting the youth as well, which is becoming a matter of concern. Therefore, the BSP demands the Central government that it should reconsider the age limit for vaccination as soon as possible,” she also demanded.
She also appealed people to follow pandemic protocol issued by state governments.
“Simultaneously, I request people to strictly adhere to Covid guideline issued by state governments so that the outbreak of the virus can be prevented,” she appealed.
