After the recent installation of Oxygen Generation Plant costing Rs. 1.41 Crore at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC), AMU, in the month of June 2021. Aligarh Muslim University has now successfully connected 110 beds with oxygen.
JNMC has 60 out of 100 beds connected to oxygen supplying panels at the dedicated Covid ICU & Covid ward. While Paediatric ICU is equipped with 50 oxygen beds, an official tweet revealed.
Earlier, as per media reports, Vice Chancellor Prof. Tariq Mansoor expressed deep grief on sudden deaths of many serving and retired teachers and other non-teaching staff. “The loss to the university is irreparable. May their souls rest in peace,” lamented Mr. Tariq.
He further added confidently, “We are determined to brave the challenges posed by the current wave of COVID. We are trying our best to tackle them with all resources we have at our disposal. We will leave no stone unturned to help our employees and students in providing the best possible medical care and support. ”
Talking to media regarding the oxygen connections in the wards he said that the oxygen connections will make sure that no COVID patient dies due to the lack of oxygen.
The college also has different special wards like AC wards, deluxe wards, VIP wards and wards for teachers and students.
As it is predicted that the third wave will affect children in large numbers, so JNMC is focussing more on the paediatric high-dependency units. The paediatric ward is well connected with oxygen panels along with other required facilities.
Besides these facilities, JNMC also has separate wards for COVID positive pregnant ladies. The step-down ward is also well connected with the supply of oxygen.
