Chandigarh, May 18
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today appreciated the steps taken by the UT Administration to fight the deadly coronavirus in the city.
The Prime Minister held a video conference with the chief ministers and administrators of states and UTs, including a select group of deputy commissioners, today. Mandip Singh Brar, Deputy Commissioner (DC), Chandigarh, was selected to make a presentation regarding Covid management in the city.

Modi desired that the DC should make a presentation and share some of the good practices of Chandigarh with the rest of the states.
In his direct interaction with the Prime Minister, Brar mentioned steps such as coordination among the tricity, involvement of all doctors in decision making, increase in testing and contact tracing, setting up of oxygen plants on priority, retraining of staff to prevent leakage or improper use of oxygen, containment of Bapu Dham Colony, setting up of micro-containment zones and resultant steps to stop transmission of the virus, use of Covid care centres, role played by Ayush and Dhanwantry ayurvedic college, positive role being played by NGOs, RWAs, religious organisations and other members of civil society and increase in the number of oxygen and ICU beds in government hospitals.
The DC said the PM was all praise for the timely commissioning of three oxygen generation plants at the GMCH, Sector 32, GMSH, Sector 16, and the Covid hospital at Sector 48. Moreover, nearly 10 per cent of oxygen was saved after a team of senior doctors from the GMCH and the GMSH visited private and government hospitals to educate and sensitise them to optimum utilisation of oxygen.
