Jaipur | At a time, when the Covid cases are rising in the country at an alarming pace, there are stories of hope and humanity. One such story has emerged from the remote district of Rajastan – Barmer, in which Congress leaders have built two Covid care centres within a span of just 48 hours.
The two centres, which are found out at a time when the raging pandemic has affected over 2,000 villages, have provided much-needed relief.
One of the 2 centres has been inbuilt the center of the desert in Pachpadra. Built within 48 hours, it’s six bunkhouses that have 25 beds in total. Two beds at this centre have oxygen support. The centre is equipped with modern facilities for Covid-19 treatment.
Another 100-bed facility has come up in around two days in Barmer’s Bayatu. It has 100 beds, 30 of which have oxygen support. The centre, the primary line of treatment for locals, will provide medical facilities for patients from rural areas of the district.
Most villages in Barmer, a neighborhood in western Rajasthan bordering Pakistan, are currently within the grip of a severe second wave of coronavirus pandemic. At present, Barmer has quite 4,700 active cases and over 10,000 cases of Covid-19.
In the wake of things , local Congress MLA Maewaram Jain joined the efforts to create a 100-bed Covid care centre at a university in Barmer district headquarters.
“It is true that there’s an acute shortage of beds in hospitals. Keeping this in mind, we’ve started a 100-bed hospital during a college where 70 patients have already been admitted. Apart from this, we are starting another 100-bed hospital. There is no shortage of oxygen and injection,” Mewa Ram Jain, Congress MLA, Barmer, said.
