New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said the cases of black fungus disease in the national capital are around 500.
There is an extreme shortage of medicine for black fungus in the city, the production of the medicine has to be increased, Mr Kejriwal told reporters here.
He said the Delhi government has set up dedicated centres for the treatment of black fungus disease
in LNJP Hospital, GTB Hospital and Rajiv Gandhi Hospital but there is no medicine.
”We did not receive the medicine yesterday, so how can we treat the patients without the
medicine? The injection is administered 4 to 5 times a day, if we are not given the injection
then how can we treat the patient?
Suddenly this illness has emerged and there is a shortage of its medicine in the market, so the Central Government is distributing all the medicines it has in all the states.
There is an extreme shortage of medicine, its production also has to be increased. Since 4-5 injections need to be administered daily and there are around 500 patients so we need 2000 injections daily but we are receiving only 400-500 injections,” he said.
