Many patients are turning away from the hospital due to the size and high cost of heart rings. Such suffering has been going on since December 17. However, there is nothing to be done in this crisis, said the Department of Medicine Administration. The Director General said, it can be resolved on the recommendation of the 13-member expert committee.
On December 16, the Department of Medicines Administration fixed the new price of heart rings. In protest, 24 out of 27 importers stopped supplying rings. Doctors said that due to relatively low prices, the demand for rings in Europe is high. But many patients are forced to turn away due to supply cuts.
Director of Dhaka Medical College Hospital Brigadier J. Nazmul Haque said, if we have to talk about supply or suffering with rings, there is definitely suffering here. This is because some of the suppliers are closed so others are not able to pay.
The Department of Medicines Administration is negotiating with the importers to resolve the deadlock. Still no solution.
Meanwhile, the authorities have no intention of normalizing the supply of rings. The Director General of the Department of Drug Administration, Major J., is waiting for the recommendation of the expert committee. Mohammad Yusuf. He said, the expert doctors who work on these have decided the price, I have nothing to say, I am not an expert. They will do what they have to do.
Four of the 13 members of the expert committee refused to comment when contacted.
