DIBRUGARH: Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma visited Assam Medical College & Hospital (AMCH) at Dibrugarh on Saturday and took a comprehensive review of the COVID situation in the district with the Deputy Commissioner, AMCH authorities and other senior officers. He also reviewed the precautionary measures adopted by the administration apart from enforcement of COVID protocols and treatment facilities being provided to COVID patients at AMCH, stated a press release.

Keeping in view the fact that more COVID fatalities had occurred late in the night and due to late night arrivals, the Chief Minister directed AMCH authorities to improve odd hour management to render efficient services to COVID patients arriving late night through on-duty senior and experienced doctors. Further to boost COVID care, he asked MD NHM and AMCH authorities to ensure early operationalization of the super specialty hospital constructed at AMCH within a week. The super specialty hospital will have 60 ICU beds and is expected to significantly boost COVID care treatment.

The Chief Minister also asked AMCH authorities to coordinate with Oil India Limited (OIL) for setting up a 40,000 litres oxygen plant at the hospital. Moreover, reviewing the containment and testing measures adopted by the district administration to deal with the pandemic, Chief Minister Dr Sarma asked the DC to take more containment measures including increasing the number of containment zones to bring down positivity rate in the district apart from conducting more than 700 RTPCR tests per day to detect positive cases early.
