Abohar/Fazilka, September 15

Heath Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu today visited the Civil Hospital in Abohar and reviewed the arrangements to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

At a meeting with doctors and paramedical staff, he promised that necessary equipment would be provided soon and there was no need to panic. “You are doing your work with dedication. Many patients have recovered and returned home,” he said.

Sidhu said an ambulance equipped with a ventilator would be made available to the Civil Hospital besides other facilities. About the problems being faced due to staff shortage, he said doctors and medical staff were being recruited all over Punjab and soon, the gap would be bridged.

Meanwhile, Sidhu directed officials to drain out the rainwater from fields in Fazilka district. He was responding to the demands of farmers at a district grievance redress committee meeting at the camp office of Deputy Commissioner Arvind Pal Singh Sandhu.

He also directed expediting development works being carried out in different parts of the district to remove the tag of Fazilka being one of the dirtiest towns in the country. Earlier, he took a round of the local district hospital, met patients and enquired about their well-being. — OC
