Second wave hit rural areas more, says Civil Surgeon
Ludhiana Civil Surgeon Kiran Gill said the second wave had affected rural areas more. Hence, it was important that sarpanches and panches of villages should be sensitised beacause they have direct link with each and every person of the village and they could make people aware of the Covid guidelines of the state government. To achieve this, mass media team of the Health Department, Ludhiana, visits different villages of Ludhiana to sensitise them.
She said the state government had also invited residents from each village to come and be a volunteer of their area to make sure that Covid guidelines were followed in the village.
In the end, she appealed to all residents of Ludhiana to follow the Covid guidelines of the state government.
Besides, Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) has rolled out Mission HO2PE. As part of the mission, HUL has partnered with the KVN Foundation and Portea Medical, home healthcare company, to make oxygen concentrators available free of cost to Covid patients promptly and efficiently. The HUL will also be donating concentrators to hospitals in nearly 35+ locations across urban and rural areas of the country.
Through the mission, the HUL has airlifted over 50,00 oxygen concentrators into India. The firm’s partnership with the KVN Foundation and Portea Medical will provide access to oxygen for Covid-19 patients directly in their homes, thereby reducing pressure on our healthcare infrastructure which is already under duress.
