Karnal, May 11
After opening a 100-bedded Covid care centre at a banquet hall, the district authorities have started a 30-bedded oxygen cylinders-equipped Covid health care resource support centre at Nirankari Bhawan here.
This was stated here today by Nishant Kumar Yadav, Deputy Commissioner, who visited the centre with Superintendent of Police Ganga Ram Punia.
Yadav thanked the management of the Nirankari Bhawan for the initiative taken by them.
He said the GM Roadways, Kuldeep Singh, had been assigned the duty as nodal officer for the centre, while the Health Department had deployed doctors and paramedical staff here.
Subhash Saluja, regional convener of Nirankari Bhawan, said they had deployed volunteers to ensure the smooth supply of water, electricity and also ensure cleanliness at the place. He said a waiting hall had also been built for the attendants.
Meanwhile, a day after the directions of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to set up Covid hospitals at the community health centre (CHC) level, the district administration on Tuesday started two Covid hospitals — one having 20 beds at Indri CHC and another with 15 beds at Kunjpura CHC.
