Jalandhar, July 15

The Community Health Centre (CHC), Basti Guzan, has now been equipped with piped oxygen supply, which is being developed as the Level-2 Covid Care Centre.

On the directions of Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori, the administration had initiated the work for a 100-bed facility in three urban CHCs a few days back. On Wednesday, Dr Vandana Saggar, SMO Basti Guzan, along with others inspected the work.

On installation of piped oxygen supply at the CHCs, Thori said the move aimed to meet any exigency in future, if the trying circumstances of the pandemic call for. “The work of piped oxygen supply will be completed in Dada Colony and Khambra CHCs soon, which will also act as Level-II Covid care facilities,” he said. He said this health infrastructure was being upgraded by roping in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds at the said CHCs.

The DC said it was the need of the hour to adhere to the guidelines such as wearing mask, washing hands frequently, maintaining social distancing issued by the state government and the Health Department as preventive measures against the virus.
