The World Health Organization (WHO) is helping the state set up, manage and train staff of Covid hospitals in the districts. WHO has been sending its consultant doctors and surveillance officers to newly acquired Covid hospitals in Bengal, most of which were either private hospitals or Ayush hospitals.
At Kotulpur Medicare General Hospital, WHO consultant Soumyadeep Chowdhury organized detailed training of 36 healthcare workers, including doctors, on Tuesday. He focused on the disinfection protocol. The hospital does not have any Covid-19 patients at present.
On Monday, WHO surveillance officer Subhadwip Bhuniyan visited the Panskura Corona Centre in East Midnapore. Bhuniyan examined the infrastructure and emphasised on the importance of abiding by the disinfection protocol. So far, 14 Covid-positive patients have been treated at the 20-bed hospital. However, it doesn’t have any patient at present. Bhuniyan then visited the Ayush Hospital in Midnapore Town.
This helping process began on April 6, when a WHO doctor visited the new Covid treatment hospital in Burdwan Town for a training session.
