Despite tall claims of the administration over the easy availability of Remdesivir injection, there was an acute short supply of the crucial drug, needed for treating Covid-19 cases, in the city on Friday.
PROTEST AT DAWA BAZAAR
People were desperately looking for the injection in medical shops and there was a huge crowd at Dawa Bazaar, the wholesale market for medicines. Some had reached Dawa Bazaar at 8 am, searching for the medicine. While some did get the injection, many had to return empty-handed. In desperation, some people staged a chakka-jam on the road near Dawa Bazaar leading to traffic snarl. The police somehow managed to remove the agitated people from the road into a proper queue outside shops that still had the injection.
Santosh Jain whose was admitted to a city hospital and needs the injection said that he stood outside a medical shop for a very long time and then got a dose for himself. He said that the struggle for getting the injection is increasing day by day.
