To prevent any accident caused by gas leakage, everybody has to be cautious and awareness campaign is needed in this regard.
Many burn patients living in remote areas cannot be admitted to burn units on time.
In the wake of the reason, the death risk increases. Even, some burn patients lose their limbs.
They require continuous treatment for two years. It needs teamwork treatment. As a result, reliance of burn patients on a single centre should decrease by decentralisation of treatment in various burn units.
The majority of burn injuries happen from gas leakage. To reduce the incidents, government, technicians who connect gas line and house owners have to monitor gas line regularly. Otherwise, the death rate will increase. There is no alternative to awareness in this regard.
Titas Gas authorities, house owners, political leaders, doctors and media workers have to build up awareness from their own perspectives to reduce burn incident.
