Power For Health Care

State Government has asked the Distribution Companies (DISCOM)s to take immediate steps for providing uninterrupted power supply to the Health Care Institutions in view of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Bishnupada Sethi, Secretary Energy held discussion with the senior officials of the Department of Energy here on 16 March and asked the DISCOMs to provide uninterrupted power supply to Public Health Centres, Community Health Centres,

District Headquarters Hospitals and Medical College and Hospitals, other Medical Establishments and Quarantine in the State at the earliest.

Accordingly, Department of Energy has issued orders to CESU, WESCO, NESCO and SOUTHCO to provide continuous power supply to these institutions as outbreak of COVID-19 has gripped the entire world in a state of disbelief and shock.

The Pandemic has been decalred as Global Health Emergency by the world Health Organization and subsequently declared as Disaster by the Government of India as well as Odisha Government.

This calls for immediate and proactive steps in a coordinated manner to tackle such critical situation.

In fact Government of Odisha is committed to take urgent and aggressive action in order to contain the spread of this pandemic.

In such State of Emergency, providing adequate healthcare services to the citizens is of utmost importance. All the Medical Establishments, including the Temporary Quarantine Centres opened by the State Government are required to receive uninterrupted power supply for their seamless functioning as they are likely to be the First Point Of Contact by the Citizens in case of any kind of Health Emergency.

State Government has also asked the authorities in Medical Establishments to have power-back up facilities at their respective centres to face any exigency in case of temporary power break-down.

There are over 1200 Health Care Institutions across the State and DISCOMs have been shared the Detailed List by the Department of Energy for “Urgent Action”.
