Haffkine company stopped supplying medicines
On the evening of October 2, hospital superintendent Dr. Shyam Rao Wakode said that there is a shortage of medicines used in the treatment of snake bite and other serious diseases in the hospital. Haffkine Company has stopped supplying medicines. Employees are constantly being transferred from the hospital, so we are short on staff.

One government hospital within a radius of 70-80 km
The dean of the hospital had told that 6 boys and 6 girls have died in the last 24 hours. We are a tertiary care center and the only government hospital within a radius of 70 to 80 kilometres. That’s why patients come to us from far and wide.

The dean told that we had to buy medicines from an institute named Haffkine, but this could not happen. So we purchased medicines locally and provided them to the patients. The number of patients increases in a few days and this creates problems for the budget.
