In view of the surge in the Covid positive cases, Jalli has urged the owners of the private hospitals to keep ready their hospital for Covid treatment. They have been advised to tie-up with hotels so that they can accommodate mild symptomatic cases, as and when required. The president of non-govt Health Establishment Association NilabhaMazumder has assured all kinds of support in fighting this pandemic.

The officials of armed forces have been requested to keep ready their hospitals to give admission to their own asymptomatic Covid patients. However, they will be shifted to medical college if their symptoms persist.

While reviewing the present scenario of oxygen supply in the district, Jalli has been assured that sufficient stock and capacity of oxygen supply is available in the district to meet the need. However, the deputy commissioner has warned against any illegal hoarding of oxygen by individuals or any establishment.

The deputy commissioner has urged the public not to panic but be careful. She urged people to use masks and maintain proper hygiene to save themselves from the disease. Jalli noted that asymptomatic cases can be cured at home but symptomatic cases should be given proper and timely treatment.

The deputy commissioner has also expressed hope that with support of the people of Cachar, the pandemic can be checked.
