A 160 bed Covid-19 hospital was inaugurated in Gonda on Thursday by chief minister Yogi Adityanath who said it will ensure good care to people contracting novel coronavirus infection in east UP.
CM Yogi Adityanath also dedicated a 300-bed hospital worth Rs 32.37 crore to public, and said one 300-bed Covid hospital is being constructed in Noida also.
“The Covid-19 hospital at Devipatan will serve people of nearby districts and provide them good quality medical care. The Gonda Covid hospital would be linked digitally with SGPGI. Officials should ensure adequate staff so that testing is carried out in two shifts,” the CM said, while thanking the Tata Trust and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the hospital.
The people of aspirational districts like Bahraich, Shravasti, Balrampur would greatly benefit from the facility, he added.- ToI
