Covid patients in Chuwari subdivision of Chamba district are facing a lot of hardships as they have no facility of any Dedicated Covid Care Centre in their subdivision. They have to rush to Chamba for treatment by travelling around 100 km. The steep surge in Covid infection in this subdivision has necessitated the setting up of a Covid centre at Chuwari. The 50-bedded Civil Hospital can be utilised for this purpose. The authorities should consider setting up this facility at this hospital, where almost all 50 beds in the indoor wards are lying vacant ever since the second wave of the pandemic started. — Surender Pal Bhardwaj, Chuwari
Leaking pipes a nuisance
Water pipes in the Mool Koti panchayat in Shimla have been leaking for some time. The pipes are old, rusted and have developed cracks. Instead of changing these, Jal Shakti Vibhag officials try to fix it with rubber and plastic joints which does not work. As a result, a lot of water is wasted. The department should replace these pipes at the earliest. — Residents, Mool Koti, Shimla
