Churachandpur DC, SP, CMO inspect oxygen generation plant at district hospital
Deputy commissioner Pawan Yadav expressed concern that unless the oxygen plant is made functional within 10 to 15 days, there will be a major problem as COVID-19 positive cases are increasing consistently in the district.
The deputy commissioner of Churachandpur Pawan Yadav, superintendent of police and chief medical officer along with the medical superintendent of the district hospital and other officials inspected the ongoing work of construction of an oxygen generation plant at the district hospital premises on Wednesday.
The decision to construct the oxygen plant was made at the DLOs meeting chaired by the DC on Tuesday where it was resolved that the oxygen plant will be made functional within 10 days.
During the inspection, the deputy commissioner expressed concern that unless the oxygen plant is made functional within 10 to 15 days, there will be a major problem as COVID-19 positive cases are increasing consistently in the district. The construction of the oxygen plant was approved in December last year, however could not be implemented due to delay in fund allocation. The oxygen plant is expected to generate 200 litre of oxygen per minute, he added.
Meanwhile, IDPS Churachandpur reported that 42 new COVID-19 positive cases were recorded with one death on Wednesday. The district now has 186 COVID-19 active cases. So far 51 COVID-19 deaths have been recorded in Churachandpur since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
