Imphal, June 12 (EMN): Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Saturday inaugurated the newly set-up Covid intensive care unit (ICU)/accident trauma centre at the state-run Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) in Imphal East district.

The new centre is equipped with 100 ICU beds with advanced medical facilities for treatment of Covid-19 positive patients who need intensive care. Presently JNIMS has 156 Covid beds including 19 ICU beds.

Speaking at the occasion, Biren Singh said that the newly inaugurated ICU centre would be of great relief to the people of the state as supply of oxygen to Covid-19 infected patients had been a major concern.

He informed that the government had assigned different teams consisting of three officers each to four major Covid hospitals namely RIMS, JNIMS, Shija Hospital and Raj Medicity to strengthen coordination between the hospital’s authorities, patients and the government.

Stating that saving peoples’ lives is the priority, he informed that the government would take stringent action against those hospitals or staff neglecting to attend the patients putting their lives in risk.

Construction of a 200-bedded dedicated Covid hospital with 50 ICU beds is also in progress at Kyamgei with the assistance of DRDO and the same would be ready for operation within a month, he added.

He stated that work on setting up oxygen plants in certain hill districts is currently underway, and that the central government had also approved the establishment of an oxygen plant capable of refilling 200 cylinders in the state, assuring that the state would have an adequate supply of oxygen once these plants are operational.

He added that the state now had adequate facilities for accommodating Covid-19 patients with its five to six Dedicated Covid Hospitals, more than 2000 beds at different Covid Care Centres and other facilities set up at every assembly constituency.

He appealed to the public to be responsible and adhere to the SOPs issued by the government from time to time as support and cooperation of each and every individual is much necessary for fighting the pandemic successfully.

Minister of Agriculture, Oinam Lukhoi, MP Rajya Sabha Maharaja Sanajaoba Leishemba, advisor to Chief Minister (Health) Dr. Sapam Ranjan, chairman of Loktak Development Authority, L Susindro, principal secretary V Vumlunmang, secretary to Chief Minister, N Geoffery and officials of JNIMS attended the inaugural function among others. Later, the chief minister also inaugurated a 60-bedded Covid Care Centre set up at the multipurpose hall of Standard College, Kongba, Imphal East district.
