Demand for more Covid Care Centres

Shillong, May 10: The public representatives of Sohra and Shella have requested the state government to set up dedicated Covid-19 Care Centres in the two constituencies.
A joint memorandum on this regard was submitted by the Shella MLA Balajied Synrem, KHADC CEM and Sohra MDC Titosstarwell Chyne and Shella MDC Teinwell Dkhar to the health minister AL Hek here today.
“In the last few days, cases of Covid-19 are also on the rise in and around Sohra and Shella Area which is alarming. Therefore, as concerned elected representatives representing Sohra and Shella constituency, we would like to impress upon your good office to kindly start a dedicated Covid-19 care centre within Sohra and Ichamati CHC to facilitate accessible and speedy treatment of Covid positive patients,” they said.
They said that this will ease the burden of the already-stretched health care workers of Shillong and also prevent overwhelming of the health care system in the hospitals of Shillong.
