Dimapur, Jan. 21 (EMN): The pressure swing adsorption (PSA) oxygen generating plant at Dr. Motsuo Memorial District Hospital in Wokha town is non-functional due to shortage of power supply.

This was informed by the chief medical officer (CMO) of Wokha, Dr. Tumchobeni Kikon, during the monthly meeting of Wokha district planning and development board (DPDB) held on January 20 under the chairmanship of the deputy commissioner and vice chairman of DPDB Wokha, Orenthung Lotha in his office’s conference hall.

Presenting the district’s Covid-19 scenario, the CMO sought the board’s intervention to make the oxygen plant functional at the earliest, a DIPR report stated.

Pointing out that the department has decided to conduct colony-wise vaccination drives from next week, the CMO requested all concerned to spread awareness and encourage the public to get vaccinated.

Supplementing the CMO, Deputy Commissioner stated that installation of a dedicated transformer at the District Hospital was unsuccessful despite repeated effort from the Wokha DPDB and DTF for Covid-19. On this, he requested the department concerned to install the same at the earliest as various healthcare equipment/ facilities installed at the hospital have become non-functional due to shortage of power supply.

Briefing the preparedness status on Covid-19, the medical superintendent of the District Hospital informed that the health facility currently has 10 ICU beds and four isolation wards with nine beds.

During the meeting, the board recommended the registration of NNM Foundation in Pangti village for consideration to higher authority.
