Corona preparations reviewed in Dibrugarh

By Our Bureau

DIBRUGARH, April 3 - Though there have been no case of COVID-19 in the Dibrugarh district, the local DC, Pallav Gopal Jha and his team are working literally round-the-clock to confront any eventuality here. As Dibrugarh is a major medical centre of the North East, it is obvious that doctors and the health infrastructure in the city are the last resort of good health for the majority of citizens of upper Assam and the neighbouring States.

Keeping these factors in consideration, the district administration and the medical authorities here have to remain on their tenterhooks round-the-clock. Reviewing the degree of preparedness, the local DC and his colleagues once again weighed the level of preparedness of the health delivery mechanism here.

The Principal of Assam Medical College & Hospital, Prof H Goswami updated the civil officials of the facilities that are on stand by mode at the medical college and of the facilities that are being put up, to take additional patient-loads, if necessary. The availability of apparatus and medicines were also reviewed. In the event of a corona detection, modalities of locality sealing and sanitization are also under consideration, it is learnt.

Meanwhile, the lone COVID-19 confirmed patient of Arunachal Pradesh, who is now in Tezu town, may be brought to the city here for treatment.
