Chief Secretary Suresh Chandra Mahapatra reviewed the Covid situation in different districts today.
Sources in CS’ office said he primarily discussed about the requirements of the districts and took necessary steps to resolve issues.
While advising the Collectors to keep their covid call centers fully active and responsive on 24×7 basis, Mr.Mahapatra directed them to reach the patients within least possible time and monitor the home isolation cases closely.
The serious patients should be brought to hospital as and when family members or the patient needs it, he said while directing the Collectors to put in place a system for informing about health condition of the serious patients to their family members so that they do not rush to the hospitals.
All the districts are to functionalize the CCCs with oxygen facilities, he said.
Further, the CS directed the SPs and Collectors to deploy fire fighting teams in all covid hospitals for instant action. “They should be ready for instant action for checking the spread of fire if it breaks out and protect the patients, health personnel and properties,” he said.
Additional Chief Secretary and SRC Pradeep Kumar Jena along with other senior officers joined Chief Secretary in this review. Collector and CDMOs participated in discussions over video conferencing.
