Ganashasthya Kentra founder and trustee Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury has alleged that the novel coronavirus infected patients desperately needs oxygen for survival. One thousand litres of oxygen costs Tk 70 only. But, some hospitals are charging Tk 700 and others Tk 70,000 for 1,000 litres of oxygen.
"This is a sheer violation of law. The government should be more cautious to stop such irregularities," he said while talking to journalists on Friday.
Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury said, "I have recovered from deadly coronavirus owing to the blessings of all. Now, I am analysing how much money I had to spend for the recovery. It's better to conduct the primary treatment at home. Hospital's ICU charges throat-slit bills. Coronavirus treatment requires necessary oxygen, antibiotics and physiotherapy."
