“All seven hospitals have been given sanctions after their emails. The medicines would be dispatched soon,” said a senior official. “As on Monday evening, Civil Hospital has 370 patients of mucormycotic. We have adequate stock of medicines for them.”
Civil Hospital has carried out 231 surgeries on mucormycotic patients in past month. “The trend of new patients is on decline. On Monday, 14 new patients got admitted compared to 25-30 daily patients a fortnight ago,” said the official.
Queues were not seen for injections as relatives of patients were told that the injections would only be given to hospitals putting in formal requests. Hospitals however were not happy when they came to know that it was lyophilized instead of liposomal injections.
Meanwhile, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) approached the state health department over allocated injections of liposomal amphotericin B. “We had requests from 35 city hospitals for 900 injections. After instruction from the health department, the injections will soon be distributed to the hospitals after approval by our experts,” said an AMC official.
