Pregnant Women Shifted

 With the 'extremely severe' cyclonic storm 'FANI' fast approaching the East Coast, the Odisha Government issued instructions to shift women in their advanced stage of pregnancy to nearby hospitals, as part of its evacuation drive in the coastal areas.

 
At least 1000 plus pregnant women have been admitted in different hospitals of the State.
 
"As Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had given specific instruction to take care of women, children and elderly persons during the storm, we shifted the pregnant women to hospitals on a priority basis," Sangram Mohapatra, the Spokesperson of SRC Office said.
 
Mr.Mohapatra informed Women in their advanced stage of pregnancy are among the most vulnerable sections of people likely to be affected by the storm.
 
He said that that expectant mothers in their 36th week of pregnancy or more will be given priority.

Mr.Mohapatra said previous experiences have prompted the administration to shift these women to hospitals.
 
"We have noticed in the past that pregnant women are among the worst suffers during a calamity. They often get panicky and arranging for medical aid for them in the shelter homes becomes a problem,”, Mr.Mohapatra said.
 
 
State Government has taken up a massive operation is underway in the state to evacuate over eight lakh people from low-lying coastal areas in view of the imminent tropical storm.

At least 14 Odisha districts - Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara, Balasore, Bhadrak, Ganjam, Khurda, Jajpur, Nayagarh, Cuttack, Gajapati, Mayurbhanj, Dhenkanal and Keonjhar - are expected to bear the brunt of the cyclonic storm, which is also likely to impact Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal.
 
 
SRC office said 302 Rapid Response Teams have been set up in cyclone-prone areas, each comprising a doctor, a pharmacist and an attendant.
 
This apart, 936 medical relief camps have been formed to look after the well-being of the people, sources said.
