For 8th day Kashmir under curfew
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 6: With Kashmir continuing to reel under strict curfew for the 8th consecutive day Friday, reports about shortage of medicines, food items and other essentials are pouring in from various parts of the Valley.
The health system has been severely affected in the summer capital here with officials saying that there has been a severe shortage of vital medicines in the market.
Though the routine drugs are available in the market as well as the hospitals here, some vital drugs imported from outside the Valley have run short of stock.
A senior doctor working at SMHS hospital here said patients were returning with the complaints that the prescribed drugs were not available in the market.
“Some high-dose drugs prescribed against severe infections and gastroenterology problems are scarce,” he said.
Authorities have imposed strict curfew across the Valley since last Friday when a youth was killed in police action.
Reports pouring in from different districts said strict restriction have resulted in shortage of food items and other essentials including baby milk powder and eatables from the market.
