AGARTALA, Sep 29 (TIWN): Long speeches and high dialogues against media reports and public grievance have been exposed to reality when central team has given reports on Tripura's Health Care system's pathetic situation and how important machines are left without utilization.

“10 BiPAP NIV (non-invasive ventilators) and 19 ventilators were unutilized and not installed,” Central Team's report said.

Out of the 240 beds, 25 were equipped with oxygen supply and nine were ICU beds fitted with ventilators.

The committee’s report also has revealed that X-ray and CT scan (chest) machines were not functioning and although Death register was being maintained but records were incomplete, especially the columns on date of admission, comorbidity, diagnosis etc.

However, following the committee’s submission, a death audit committee has been formed. But it is clear that the media reports on loopholes were correct and Biplab Deb's threat to media in Sabroom speech is expression of his frustration. 

“A robust transport (dedicated ambulance with oxygen support with bag and mask with trained staff) and a sound referral system needs to be formulated as only one dedicated hospital is catering to the whole state", said the report. 

"No designated donning and doffing area for PPE at the emergency Covid care ward; “major issues” involving biomedical waste management and lack of communication between the hospital and patients’ relatives.  The team has directed the state government to strengthen the oxygen supply systems at remote district hospitals as critically-ill patients have to spend hours travelling to Agartala", it said.
