Cuttack: There is a sense of alarm among patients and healthcare personnel in Cuttack SCB, with the premiere health institution of Odisha reportedly grappling with infrastructural and management issues amid a lethal pandemic like Covid-19.

Even as patient influx continues, alleged improper disposal of medical waste, garbage and personal protective equipment (PPE) kit has emerged as a major concern for everyone. Not only this, a video shared by Manas Choudhury, President of the District Congress Committee, Bhubaneswar purportedly shows how bodies are lying scattered all over the premises of hospital corona ward.

“This medical, believed to be the ray of hope for many, is overcrowded, dirty; and bodies of people are strewn across the floor. Bed-less people have settled on the floors and the basins look vomit-inducing. It is high time the State government takes some responsibility and treats patients with attention and dignity,” the Congress leader said.

Wherever such mismanagement will be seen, Congress will record and show it to the general public to highlight how a crisis is being ‘mishandled’ by the government, he alleged.

The hospital authorities are yet to respond to the mismanagement allegations.
