Complaint lodged on non-provision of anti-snake vaccine

Raza Naqvi

My quite young brother died as he was not administered ASV (Anti Snake Vaccine) timely by the doctor on duty in THQ Hospital Jand. Waqas Ahmad r/o Thatta has alleged this in his written complaint sent to DC Attock and health authorities.

Waqas has alleged that his 28-year-old brother Owais Ahmad was sleeping when bitten by a snake at about 0515 am on 21/4/2022. Waqas said, we rushed him to THQ Hospital Jand for medical treatment/administration of ASV. We reached there at 0535 am.

The doctor on duty provided improper first aid as ASV was not administered. Because of this the condition of his brother deteriorated and the doctors on duty refered him to a hospital in Rawalpindi but his brother died on his way to hospital near Fatehjang.
