The state government on Tuesday constituted two ‘expert advisory committees’ under the guidance of Adviser, Health, Medical Education and Research, Dr KK Talwar, to ensure better management and handling of various Covid-related matters in the Government Medical Colleges of Patiala and Amritsar.

Dr Talwar said the underlying objective of the committees was to guide the administration to adopt good scientific practices to ensure better planning and management of Covid patients, with an aim of reducing complications and mortality. Both expert committees have also been mandated to chalk out strategies to ensure that non-Covid patients are not ignored. Principal Secretary, Medical Education and Research, DK Tiwari, said the committees would meet at least once a week or as per the directions of Dr Talwar through video-conferencing.
