a political party. the party which is going to look back in the country and a member of the parliament and i work for good national spokesperson and report and thank you dr i am just looking at the ministry of health and family welfare trying to get on the numbers of people impacted remember that last comment are we supposed to live like this what does like this mean i'm looking at the cases here active cases of going up of cove it deaths have gone up of cove aged 19 what is the situation from your perspective dr. the front things are definitely. real seeing a huge huge really it's not even know it it's a wall it's a tsunami and we're seeing clearly that would be about $2500.00 that's already. estimates say that maybe we had undergone being made really are not but the way
things are right now it's worrisome it's alarming i want to share a part of a report from elizabeth parliament has been reporting in new delhi and she's been going to the hospitals she's been talking to people just to get a sense of what's happening down on the ground here she is. so there but breaks down as he pleads with staff in india's biggest coded mine hospital to admit his wife much meaning. she's lying in the back of an ambulance greeting with the help of an oxygen cylinder he tells al jazeera they came here after being turned away by other hospitals. no one else except my wife and child who have left in the world with an acquaintance there's no one to look after us we aren't getting a bed and i've tried many hospitals but there's no one around to give us
a bad. saw so many people pointing the finger of blame at the government saying the government should do about it it's not like a year into a global pandemic he wasn't aware of what could happen with a 2nd or 3rd wave so what do you say to those critics. well there's no denying the fact that the cases have saved there's not a negative ad that people are looking for out of hospitalization and looking for bad but let me assure you that and let me also inform you that the picture which you have just shown it's it's not like every single hospital you have the similar kind of picture and this must be one of those because red because we had all of that we do we just don't show and could be some experience of some people but that's the nation the state government has definitely looking day and night and to ensure that all the patients with the it's all speculation must get girls but didn't have
a bed in the hospital and they also get all the systems what they need in the hospital because it is sort of it and then you have it event you have a capacity x. and suddenly if you have to figure you extend contacts and then sudden all of a sudden where you need to ramp up your capacity then you feel this kind of but if you have put it for a couple of days but everything is going to streamline and i'm sure that going forward all these videos that you're trying to show to the world is a little become only history because everybody is getting the kind of attention and the government under the leadership of the honorable prime minister has is and we in the situation on. dynamic basis and all that system which need to be given to the citizen of this great country is being given to the content so what you saw that history of a people dying so people dying history. can you pick up here all we're looking at a couple of individual cases all things are weather cameras a point and this is not one of suffering. god this is all us in their suffering and
i don't know all i don't know if these ruling party lives in the same country as the rest of us have this point because this is firstly this is every single hospital in every single city and the 2nd point is that this is a 1st. this is. some experience us of some people in some cities even if it were some experiences of individual cases who happened to be at the hospital when the dust camelot was there. are said to the government. would not dismiss it out of hand saying that it is a one off of our 2nd list as our 1st and this is a sudden surge it's not out in storage i reporter for catherine magazine that the scientists you know as early as october are by then the prime minister's national
scientific nost force they do not need to all true february and march when they knew that the time that nick was. just trading like a fever through india instead they were holding election rallies and they were allowing pilgrimage and now when the cases that get reported and do get caught on camera are the video he has a. standard playbook of this misses this nick as a one off. and oh well. consomme you know it is that dr cutler said that if we put 5 straight days the reported 300000 cases 2500 deaths and all of these are huge numbers of active estimates and flora the problem here at this point is that we have a government which is looking at 2500 deaths 35 or 330-0000 cases that they themselves are and is somehow able to dismiss that as saying it's
a one off and it's history. i know i just missed one program of course yes of course well let's put it's fun to. see that we have not been insensitive government a bit of a sensitive and since our government we had all of us concerned about a citizen and what needs to be done for our systems and to ensure that they get the best kind of attention and that is already on the plan that started all of them time government functionaries and the mission that is doing that and plea having said that let me tell you that there are many instances i'm not denying the fact that meant that a sudden surge and it's not only exceptional to do it to india same thing have been counted in europe and that's when the sitting president lee and united states that just go back to the history and few months ago it let's give it the 1st wave of forward and haul it completed this september and bad process in the united states despite the fact that the united states it used to be number one income in terms of
the medical infrastructure and the facility and yet there they were they had ice at that point of time and back it is it is unfair to blame a country and fair to a blind pinpoint a country when there is a crisis and i think that the message is loud and clear from the government that we have to collectively work when there is something crisis we have to look electively we have to ensure that whatever needs to be done to ensure that citizen gets the right kind of attention must get must get from the government and such experiences what you have the what you are trying to shock us about the country and it would like is something which should not be explained by the signal does great country and if you want to make this is an exception to that exact same let's talk about let's not have any absent let's talk about the what people what indians are doing to try and help themselves because they are all right now an overwhelming cases of
covenantal and money hospitals so this is on child until it is talking about civil society child to walk out how will connect people with for instance oxygen also all get them to hospital and this is her experience how the last. it's not just there providing information also i lot of people hundreds of these. find information don't really find them grasping find them because it leads you know going to exhaust certainly north since the mind is sought i saw it's like a small hill minister you know me how it really is so we are trying our best to verify grasping for information so that we do not. start by giving them foreigners who was information in such trying dimes. so dr koch what i'm thinking about is how did we get into this situation because a few months ago i think into a few ok we had some very severe lockdowns it doesn't seem to be it doesn't seem to
impact the impact on us as much as of the countries considering how many people we have here and it was almost this size of not quite relieved because that's not right for global pandemic but a sense of i think we're going to be ok and then i want to share this with you this is from pato on twitter with a large population i think observing the coded 19 protocols is a challenge so distancing sanitizing a wearing a mask is a great deal fumigation of attendance facilities and not don and this might be the real problem though to cover the 2nd wave is that because it's just art to stay apart from other indians is that the possibility for why the 2nd life has hit so hard. well i think the reason for a huge 2nd really is that we got complacent after after the courtroom had come. in 2020 we responded really well with the harsh lockdown and re managed to have
a grip on the cases but then for not for a period of going in i think in january february and march we got to come close and that is when huge public gatherings happen if you would merely as happen you know fair's happen politically gatherings happen and i think all these lead to a sense of sent off your listeners in people that maybe it was just just a fluke it's all or that's what that's the message that people got and i think that's the main reason for a huge surge this time and beyond our control i'm getting a lot of response when you see the chief thank you so much i know it's the very early hours of the morning when this live conversation is going out. apple yes our son says the situation is really die a here we have a cute sort of medicine spreads an oxygen it's so bizarre that anyone is not able
to secure all 3 let me share that with vigil for just because you are also keeping an eye what is happening on the ground in india go ahead the shortages talk about those. there is a shortage of everything are anyone who's followed the news will know there are there is now something called oxygen. that's wrecking our between stupid governments this was our health system that was held together best and now it's fallen apart the hospitals not all the graveyard awful people are dying faster than the government can count. and. good to say to talk of shortages would imply that there are certain other things that are available my again and in the middle of all of this let me point out there who may lie that the grenade is still on bang. bang is now beginning the.
the the crisis of shortage in armies or can you nice solution without the huge demand that was created for these health services because of the political decisions taken by the b j p r i nor our listeners are saying that they're very sensitive and they're very sincere and again he called it the sudden surge when the the locker nor i all excited it's only started for the yippee because they were busy looking at the elections. it's so difficult angles of this never mind if you don't ask them a question they point the blame look at court happened last year in america our look at what happened in europe how does that absolve what india did this by having the dealers notice to prepare and then putting people under a very draconian like lockdown and then in walking a colonial let our law called after the next act to settle a split using power. biz government has taken every step in the last against
national public health security and at this point when the surge is completely out of control the lack scenes are under a stranglehold every country in the world is trying to act in it that people ask quickly as it can as against india where vaccine a whack scenes are the last expense in the world we are the pharmacy of the world and we are our of x.e. charts our $15.00 to $2030.00 single charge not only india has that kind of money. i so i don't know where the sensitive got a link was because we don't have them at this point i cannot mince words and make be j.p. . you know i do not care to litigate facts the fact is let me not started going i just want to get it for me of course yeah let me just give you some statistics how to start the sticks and i think it is.
important for everyone to know that when we demand a something which you can assess based on a day to day experience and oxygen what you are trying to convey that that is a shot at about 70 or so and it there was a good one. and in one run that i want to do it and don't do it other near to and then on a daily basis if you just take the average to some that it is 3800 while the capacity in the country and that point in time was so in other 200 metric and the tendon dammed up to 1000 as i find i do not understand i do no idea what you are actually saying but i do understand this so let me play this to you and then you can tell the families who are looking for oxygen what you actually mean what when you say that because i want this to be a useful conversation so let's let sane people in india who are looking for oxygen for their loved ones and then suffer then you can explain what you are saying then we can understand those 2 things how they go together let's have
a look. i took my relative to a hospital but they refused to admit him and told us to take him to a different one but this hospital is not admitting him either oxygen in the ambulance is running out we have a patient here in the middle of the road without any home. my mother is admitted here and i don't think they're taking good care of her the oxygen supply is irregular and the care is very bad the oxygen cylinders need to be filled up every half an hour they're not even looking at it nobody has come here for the whole night last night her oxygen mask fell off nobody came to check it she was suffering and called me kept asking me to come and put on the mask again they're also not letting me see her i asked him to give me the p.p. he could and i would take care of her. as after we got context and i don't need to explain the context as you are in india so when you're talking about this it's more about supply than a shortage of oxygen how do you explain that to the families. well let me let me
give you really good at picture and yes i said in the beginning it's sense that in some cases there are some shutting the d.c. doesn't have experience but it is their responsibility and that is primarily because of student of mine and beyond the capacity of that particular hospital of that particular nominally work of how much they use to 'd keep it and stuart so that's right side in the mind with that and they're they're looking to refill it or to do it to sort it out from the suppliers and that has taken pluto bit longer than they and particularly i'm talking what the daily because the development. does not produce oxygen but this sort of from the different part of the location experimentally it is say in the in their little area and all this stations out in the group they don't believe that so it did take time so that's they didn't force planes have been sent to action did especially the rates that are being booked.
will. supply oxygen and oxygen in the rest and then i think that's what they should so does a 2nd so it may have created some shot at for a couple of them but i'm sure that going forward all these issues are being oppressed and all the level of supply in delhi this is primarily in delhi and that at some started in the never to get started but not situation is in control and oxygen in disarray and i also think this has been supply i don't know it's about time and you don't see any more al-jazeera or any of the reports about oxygen soldiers since that is what you're saying i think there's something i want to do with it if you know what allow me to do this is just push on a little bit because we can speak fofa now about oxygen or no oxygen i will show this to you this is the this is a president joseph biden he's clearly had a call with president mosul. and there seems to be some progress here and i've
certainly seen in the news today the u.s. will send a vaccine materials other supplies to india officials say dr tucker what do you a lot of medical colleagues need what should be the next steps i think the next step should be to focus on basics we had heard a good vaccine development in india that are indigenous vaccines we have called the shooting of collection but i think. we have not met believe it or you don't when 6 percent i think the 26 per cent of her indian population is that senior did you get the more and we want the vaccination program to be. in reach that uses are rising and somehow seems like a task that is in human leave that those are really large expanses. but the cardio said report 6 percent what made you agree with this kind of statement and you know
that 140000000 people have already been wrecked and 150 would look but i don't know if i'm going to 1000000 people we need to wrexham it did in the country so when margaret said you know somebody is going to do you intend to signal this is a far this is after the lesson between someone who's sitting in the g.o.p. and someone who is an honest and he's the fairly just in the i.c.u. and i don't know it was a little or something maybe i didn't give it everything i did and i'm going to not at all this is awful what a i myself i'm not going to you know them out you know max i'm just simple calculation dramatic if they're not the only reason i was there but here to have access to let me get back to the most important person i wasn't going to let let cannot put up a great and i don't i'm somebody because i certainly part of a program and this is this is a clear cut to the formation i just might have sponsored a credit that. you know had to do that that they're getting rid of to come back to
me have already come back to me or i so guess just so that you can see as you can see i'm trying to talk to you i did also to talk to what do you and your medical colleagues need i feel that that is a conversation that the overall in part of the people interested to hear so you can target that efforts but i have one minute left now please what do you not 1st question i think it's too much and i define didn't go well close to the loo from one oxygen to linda to another box into linda because i'm just live like that because i live under so much of pressure we can't live under so much of and that in public in richmond they're not getting beds they're not getting rental it goes and not getting oxygen we can't live under that that brought a public because we are ad differently and we need oxygen we need drugs we need basic medication we need hospital supply. and this is not the time in which we can
raise our hand and say that it's you know we managed to you know break over the pandemic will not manage it's just the beginning and if if the attitude of the government remains as such in which they say that you know you've done everything for the public that is that's not enough you have to do more to do better. that is the voice of one accident. it was working on that's a lot. of fighting covered 19 in india thank you delta kaka for bringing us your experience thank you so far as well for bringing us of the opinion on the work of the b j p and thank you for explaining to us what is happening in n.g.'s why it is so important to have a look a on my laptop these are people that you should be following on twitter is here to come here as. it is right here and so watching everybody i will see you next time on the stream take a. frank
assessment of. why why exactly how and what made of never taking what a situation might not be you could ever get informed opinion is the u.s. with thinking military positioning in the middle east or is it just a simple act of reorganizing ministry us and this is a message to the region the united states is rethink you're its military in-depth analysis of the day's global headlines inside story on 00.
