Deputy CM said about the action by tweeting
Deputy CM Pathak tweeted, in this case, cognizance has been taken of the viral video of a dengue patient being offered Mosambi juice instead of platelets by Global Hospital, Jhalwa in district Prayagraj. As per the orders issued by me, the hospital has been sealed immediately and platelets packets have been sent for examination. He said that if the hospital management was found guilty, strict action would be taken against him. Whether the patient died due to wrong platelets or some other reason, it will be known after examination of platelets samples.
Hospital sealed on the orders of CMO
When asked the reason for sealing the hospital coming under Dhumanganj police station area, an official said that the hospital has been sealed on the instructions of the Chief Medical Officer (CMO). The hospital will remain sealed till the platelets sample is tested. The official said that the samples of platelets would be tested by the Drug Inspector.
Patient’s platelets had come to 17 thousand
Saurabh Mishra, the owner of the Dhumanganj hospital, has said that Pradeep Pandey was suffering from dengue. He was admitted to his hospital. He said that after the patient’s platelets level dropped to 17,000, his relatives were asked to bring platelets. He told that the patient’s patient Swaroop brought five units of platelets from the Rani Nehru (SRN) hospital, but after transfusion of three units of platelets, the patient had problems and the doctors stopped the platelets. He said that there is no facility to test platelets in his hospital.
Saurabh Mishra said that the platelets which were not donated to the patient, they should be examined from where these platelets were brought. He said that the bottle of platelets has a sticker of SRN. DM Sanjay Kumar Khatri, when asked about the investigation of platelets, said that platelets would also be tested. We will get this whole matter investigated.
The biggest question is about the dirty game of blood.
The speed with which dengue has increased in the state, this time the game of platelets has started. During the Corona period, the kind of black marketing game that took place regarding Remdesivir, platelets are going on right now. In the past, action has been taken at the administrative level regarding this, but the case of Prayagraj has opened the game. This requires administrative action. The problem has increased after the case of people losing their lives in the business of dirty games of blood. Had the process of investigation started at the administrative level, then such a situation might not have arisen.
