Reiterating the state government’s commitment for best healthcare services to Covid positive patients, Industries and Commerce Minister Sunder Sham Arora, who visited the Civil Hospital on Sunday, said there was no dearth of oxygen, Remdesivir and other medicines.

Arora said the Civil Hospital has a back up of 300 oxygen cylinders to tackle any sort of exigency.

Besides oxygen, essential medicines and other healthcare facilities have been ensured so that no patient suffers.

As many as 94 patients, including five level-II were undergoing treatment at Covid ward having a capacity of 100 beds, said the minister.

Arora said apart from the Civil Hospital, special beds for Covid patients have been arranged in private hospitals, so that these could be utilised to tackle any untoward situation.

He said the treatment and medicines were being provided free of cost to patients at the Covid ward. He also urged residents to strictly adhere to the health guidelines.

Mayor Surinder Kumar and Dr Jaswinder Singh among others were present on the occasion.
