The CLP has decided to inspect the Corona Care Centres in every district from next week

Shillong, May 29: The Congress Legislature Party met under the chairmanship of Dr Mukul Sangma which was attended by many Congress MLAs in a zoom meeting held today, to review the Covid situation in the state and the performance of the state government in tackling the pandemic.

The CLP deliberated upon the inputs received from different parts of the state on the handling of the Covid situation by the government which is wanting in all angles.

The CLP expressed concern about the alarming number of death counts of Covid patients in the state and the Shillong city in particular and attributed the primary reason to the government’s decision for home isolation of the Covid patients and various inadequacies in the hospitals to treat the Covid patients.

The Govt is not prepared with adequate infrastructures to provide support for critical Covid cases, like Oxygen,ICUs etc. and other related infrastructures to meet the requirements for treatment of Covid patients in the hospitals of the state.

The CLP also expressed its anguish in the delay to set up the Covid Care Centres and fully equipped Covid Hospitals through out the state.

The CLP also noted with concern the neglect of the Govt towards the services rendered by the Ashas who are the first line of contact in this pandemic.

The Ashas have been exhaustively attending to their duties without any incentives from the govt. The CLP desires that the govt acknowledges the services of all frontline workers and incentivise them adequately.

The CLP also expressed its dismay over the decision of the government to provide Ex gratia of 50000/- to the family of the deceased who succumbs from Covid.

The CLP feels that since this pandemic is already declared as a National Disaster, therefore the state Government should treat every death of a Covid patient as part of the disaster and hence provide the ex- gratia as per the provision of the law duly notified under the National Disaster Management Act.

The CLP also observed that the Community isolation centres set up by various Dorbar Shnongs in their respective localities are gaining positive responses and many patients are in the process of being isolated from their families. The CLP desires that the government should support these Centres with financial assistances for logistics.

The CLP observed that many Covid patients from other districts are being referred to the hospitals in Shillong due to the poor infrastructure of the district hospitals, CHCs and PHCs in the adjoining district headquarters. Thus, putting a pressure on the availability of beds in the hospitals in Shillong.

The CLP demands the government to immediately ramp up the health care facilities in other districts and make each health care centre in the districts and subdivisions functional including placement of manpower for both Covid and Non-Covid patients.

The CLP has decided to inspect the Corona Care Centres and the Health facility centres in every district from next week onwards to find out the facilities that the government has provided to these hospitals and the deficiencies , thereof.
