In the second wave of Covid, from pharmacies to ambulance operators and from private labs to those selling medical equipment, humanity has been humiliated. When people were pleading to save the lives of their loved ones, all the responsibilities collected a lot from the helpless patients and relatives. The recovery was also not fixed like this, but by charging up to 500 times more than the fixed price, the patients and the attendants were rendered dead. Community social media platform Local Circle has prepared such a report by surveying 389 districts of the country, which will make the people of the country bow their heads in shame.


Interaction with 38,000 people from 389 districts


The Research and Analysis team of Local Circle conducted a massive survey of the country based on conversations with 38,000 people from 389 districts of the country. In this survey, their experience was known by talking to thousands of people in the country regarding the medicines, ambulances, medical equipment, and the charges collected in the labs that prepared the Covid reports for the patients used during the second wave of Covid. Members of the local circle research team say that the results obtained based on conversations with people are very shocking. Because whoever got as much opportunity as possible, people were ruthlessly robbed. During the survey conducted for several months, the pain of the people came out through the tears flowing in their eyes. Because during the second wave of Covid, humanity was not only embarrassed but also people's lives were not saved.


Price recovery up to 300 to 400 times more


According to the survey of the local circle, the shopkeepers and responsibilities of Oximeter, Oxygen, and Oxygen Concentrator collected 300 to 400 times more than the fixed price from every third person of the Covid victim's family. According to the survey report, there was 18 percent of people were charged three hundred to four hundred times the cost of oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators. During this survey, people told that the needy spent up to one lakh rupees for the Chinese concentrator who was 30 to 35 thousand. Whereas, for the oximeter of two hundred to three hundred rupees, the shopkeepers charged one and a half thousand to three thousand rupees from the patients and attendants. However, during this period, 14 percent of people also mentioned that some shopkeepers gave all these devices to the people at a discount from the MRP.


The report of the local circle shows that during the second wave of Covid in the country, maximum recovery was done in the name of the ambulance. According to the report, 70 percent of the people said that they were overcharging for ambulances. According to the data of the survey team for ambulances, 50 percent of the people were charged up to 500 percent more than the fare fixed for the ambulance.


10 times the price charged for Remdesivir and FabiFlu


Reports suggest that there was loot for drugs all over the country. Many of these medicines were such that later the Indian Council of Medical Research and the Task Force team formed to monitor Covid did not consider it effective in Covid. But the patients had to struggle a lot for the medicines prescribed by the doctors. Reports suggest that drugs like Remdesivir and FabiFlu cost patients up to 10 times more. The medicine which was available in the market for thousand rupees was sold for more than 10,000 rupees. For medicines to more than 50 percent of the people, the drug dealers arbitrarily charged high prices.


Tremendous recovery was made not only in medicines but also in the RTPCR test for Covid of patients. However, 9 percent of the people agree that they were not charged in any way in government hospitals. Whereas 36% of the people say about the investigation report to be done in private hospitals at a fixed cost. Thirteen percent of the people said that they were extorted money in the name of the investigation.
