Sangrur, September 14

Divisional Commissioner of the Patiala division Chander Gaind pulled up Health Department officials for poor sanitary conditions in the emergency and Covid wards in the Civil Hospital, Sangrur, during an inspection late on Monday. Gaind has directed the Civil Surgeon to ramp up the facilities as he would again inspect the premises soon.

Local residents have often accused the authorities of not providing facilities despite Sangrur being hit the most during Covid with highest fatality rate of 5.3 per cent. As per reports, 859 died due to Covid till June-end. “I also visited the oxygen plant, drug de-addiction centre and sewage treatment plant. I have directed officials to ensure smooth functioning. The OOAT clinics are a revolutionary step and a large number of addicts have been taking treatment at these centres,” said Gaind.

His directives have given hope to locals who were worried about the facilities at the hospital. “My uncle died here due to lack of facilities. We request the government to improve health facilities here as the threat of third wave looms large,” said Jaswinder Singh, a local.
