Panaji : MLA of Cortalim Constituency Alex Reginald has expressed his helplessness while speaking to the media. “Let the government say anything but the truth is patients are waiting in hospitals for 10-11 hours to get admitted, there is lack of infrastructure in hospitals, these are the sorry state of affairs” said Reginald. “I have personally requested Dr Edwin Gomes to join duty as soon as possible” he added.
Reginald inferred this is not a time to play blame game “I am not criticising the government but asking them to remedy the situation by initiating a lockdown, if Karnataka is going for a lockdown why not Goa?” asked Reginald. He opined that at least in areas which are most infected by COVID, the government should call for a lockdown there.
Reginald said he has briefed the Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant about the situation. “There is a lack of oxygen, to get this oxygen we need at least 8 more days, what is the use of increasing beds when there is no oxygen?” asked Reginald.
