Karnal, May 3

Education Minister Kanwar Pal Gujjar and Karnal MP Sanjay Bhatia today reviewed the Covid preparedness of the district. Gujjar has been assigned duty to look after Karnal district’s arrangements for Covid.

“The situation in Karnal is under control. There is sufficient supply of oxygen,” Gujjar told the media after chairing a meeting of officials at the Mini-secretariat here.

He further said, “Lockdown is necessary to break the chain of infection. The storage capacity of the oxygen plant (at Kalpana Chawla Government Medical College) is being increased to 20,000 kg, while an oxygen generation plant is being established in the Civil Hospital. It will help in meeting the increasing demand for oxygen,” the minister added.

Meanwhile, the district administration has decided to convert hospitals at the sub-divisional level into Covid facilities in view of the increasing number of the cases. “If the district gets sufficient oxygen supply, we will try to make hospitals at the sub-divisional level into Covid facilities. Besides, oxygen cylinders will be provided to patients at the doorstep,” Deputy Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav told the media at the Mini-secretariat.
