Doctors at a government hospital in Chhattisgarh’s Bastar district had to treat injured patients under phone’s flashlights due to a five-day power outage caused by a fire from a short-circuit. Two people were killed and 18 injured in a collision between a truck and a bus. The injured were taken to the hospital, only to find that it was without power. Some of the critically injured had to be transferred to another medical college for better treatment. The hospital ambulance did not arrive at the accident site despite being called, and the injured had to be transported in the vehicles of nearby officials. Families of the injured passengers were angry and demanded action against the responsible officials. Local villagers also supported their demands, as this hospital serves as the primary healthcare facility for the entire area. MLA Rajman Benjamin has instructed the electricity department to arrange alternative arrangements and address the issues at the hospital promptly. The Block Medical Officer has sent a letter to the higher officials of the department, requesting a generator for the hospital due to dampness on the walls caused by rains.
