India, New Delhi : Dengue takes toll on Rohini hospital

Via Deccan Herald :

The large number of dengue cases being reported from Rohini zone has left the biggest Delhi government-run hospital in the area overburdened with patients. 

Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital in north-west Delhi received 535 dengue patients till Wednesday afternoon.

Shortage of platelets at the hospital’s blood bank has only worsened the situation. Relatives of patients are left running from different blood banks to their family and friends to seek blood.

Ajit Singh, 26, brother of Toofan Singh, a patient admittedwith dengue at the hospital, was unable to procure A-positive blood despite desperately searching for over three hours on Wednesday."
