Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh on Friday inspected a 600-bed COVID-19 care center at Manipur Trade and Expo Centre, Lamboi Khongnangkhong in Imphal West district to deal with the rapid rise of coronavirus cases within the state.
Earlier, during the primary wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the middle with 300 beds and 4 blocks was utilized to treat COVID-19 patients.
According to Singh, the COVID-19 care center will start working from May 8.
During the visit, the chief minister was amid deputy speaker Kongkham Robindro, advisor to CM (health) Dr. Sapam Ranjan, and principal secretary (health) V Vumlunmang.
Taking to his official Facebook page, Singh said: “I am limiting my on-ground inspections for a few time as my visit generally tends to draw a particular number of officials and therefore the general public. But when my people face a difficult time, I can’t just sit back in my bungalow to review the preparation that's being haunted across the state.”
Happy to be at service for everybody in these challenging times, he added.
Singh also interacted with Imphal West DC Th Kirankumar and health department officials, who were present in the middle, about the continued arrangement being made at the middle. He also discussed matters regarding cleanliness, proper disposal of waste generated at the middle, and therefore the duty roster of the doctors to be used at the middle, among others.
The chief minister further appealed to the doctors present at the middle to render their services with dedication and commitment as they need an important role in successfully fighting the pandemic and saving the lives of the people.
