In a statement issued here, Abhay deliberate that due to the COVID-19 second wave there exists a huge shortage of oxygen, medicines, beds , medical kits, manpower and other requisite infrastructure in order to tackle this Health emergency in an effective manner.
“The administration must primarily focus on adapting every necessary means to overcome these shortages in the Health Care system. The lives lost in this pandemic are due to the unavailability of proper infrastructure and essential medical facilities,” he said.
He further said 24/7 Control room is a welcome step but the efforts required to appositely handle this crisis demand much more than it.

Moreover, Abhay appealed to the people to follow and adhere to the guidelines, SOPS and lockdown restrictions imposed by the government for the collective safety of all.
“We as responsible citizens have also to play our part. Our precautionary measures will eventually result in breaking the infections chain of this virulent virus and only then will the impact of this pandemic be neutralized effectively,” he said.
