With the surge in Covid-19 patients in the district, the health authorities have decided to once again convert Kalpana Chawla Government Medical College (KCGMC) into a dedicated Covid hospital, with all non-Covid activities to be run from the Civil Hospital.

“As the number of Covid cases is increasing, we have decided to shift all non-Covid activities, except the OPDs, to the Civil Hospital,” said Dr Jagdish Dureja, director, KCGMC, adding that soon the KCGMC would have the facility of dialysis which would be beneficial to Covid patients.

The medical surgical, ENT, ortho and emergency work will be shifted to the Civil Hospital in a day or two, while the labour room and gynaecology department will be shifted after the renovation of the labour room there. Only life-saving surgeries will be conducted at the KCGMC.

The district is among the ones having the maximum cases of coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Civil Surgeon, Dr Yogesh Sharma, said more ventilators would be functional at the KCGMC in the coming days.
