CM: More beds with oxygen support on anvil

Palwal, May 3

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today said a task force had been working on ensuring the availability of medical oxygen, besides adding more oxygen-supported beds in the state. The crisis would be over soon, he added.

Khattar was in the district to inspect facilities and arrangements regarding Covid-19. He said the supply and distribution of oxygen across the state had been increased. Teams of officials had been deputed for round-the-clock monitoring and addressing the grievances of people.

The Chief Minister said more oxygen-supported beds were being added.

Earlier, addressing administrative officials at the PWD Rest House here, the CM directed the authorities to carry out a comprehensive survey in the rural areas to detect the spread of the infection. Health officials were told to create isolation facilities, besides ensuring proper treatment to Covid patients.

“Appropriate treatment accompanied with information and medicines should be made available to all patients in home isolation,” said the CM, while ordering that the number of oxygen-supported beds in the Civil Hospital be increased immediately.

Civil Surgeon Dr Brahmdeep Singh said the number of beds for Covid patients would be increased to 700 soon.

DC Naresh Narwal discussed arrangements in the district to tackle the Covid spread. He said 3,110 isolation beds were available in 28 government and private institutions. A survey was being carried out in all villages to detect sick persons, the DC added. — TNS
