20-hour power outage plunges Unakoti District Hospital in Kailashahar into darkness


By TC News Desk

Agartala, 18th April 2024:  The Unakoti district hospital in Kailashahar has been grappling with a crippling power outage for the past 20 hours, leaving patients in distress. The outage, attributed to private electricity service provider Sai Computer Corporation, has halted crucial medical services including CT scans and dialysis, intensifying the plight of those in need.

The Unakoti District Hospital was plunged into darkness around 6 p.m. on Wednesday evening, as a result of a minor wind incident. Despite concerted efforts by the medical staff to reach out to Sai Computer Corporation, the attempts proved futile. The situation worsened when Sai Computer Company failed to restore power to the hospital, even after being informed of the dire circumstances.

As the night wore on, with no respite in sight, the hospital remained in darkness, exacerbating the challenges faced by patients and healthcare workers alike. Despite the presence of generators within the district hospital premises, they proved insufficient to meet the electricity demands across all hospital facilities.

Crucial medical services such as CT scans and dialysis, vital for patient care, have been brought to a standstill due to the prolonged power outage. Patients and their families have voiced their distress, citing unbearable conditions exacerbated by the scorching heat.

“We are struggling to cope with the extreme heat and discomfort since yesterday. If Sai Computer Company does not expedite the restoration of services, these district hospitals risk becoming death traps, especially during this turbulent season.”

As of noon today, Sai Computer Corporation has yet to dispatch personnel to rectify the situation. The lack of urgency from the service provider has only added to the anguish of patients and healthcare providers.

The prolonged power outage in Kailasahar’s district hospitals underscores the critical need for reliable electricity infrastructure, especially within healthcare facilities. Urgent action is imperative to prevent further disruption to medical services and to safeguard the well-being of patients relying on these facilities.
