Temporary hospital at base camps coming to the aid of Amarnath yatris

I had come for the 2023 Shri Amarnath ji yatra. After walking for 5 km I began to feel suffocation, said a pilgrim. I came to the base camp hospital. I have not seen such good hospital staff anywhere else, said the pilgrim. The hospital was clean, oxygen supply was there, heart doctors were in attendance. The whole system of Amarnath yatra is very well arranged, said the pilgrim. An ambulance driver said, my duty is such that I get the privilege to participate in the yatra duty. I belong to the district Ganderbal. I get a chance to serve the yatris. We have to do our duty even at one in the night. Whether it is sunny or rainy we transport patients to the hospital, said the ambulance driver. We feel that it is our good luck that we serve the yatris. Every year we come to the service of the yatris. The base hospitals by DRDO st Baltal and Pahalgam and other medical aid centres have been arranged throughout the yatra route with medical supplies, doctors and necessary equipment, said the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Shri Manoj Sinha. Adequate arrangement of oxygen cylinders have been made. The 100-bedded temporary hospital by DRDO has been made to cater to the 2023 Shri Amarnath ji yatris, said a doctor at the hospital. We have all the sections here, labs and X Ray machines. At the high altitude we get cases of acute motion, breathlessness, hypoxia, gastroenteritis, high altitude pulmonary edema and high altitude cerebral edema. Our point is just to save the lives of the yatris, the doctor on duty at Amarnath base camp hospital said.
