The New Town Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) on Tuesday opened an oxygen camp at a facility that was earlier a safe house near tank number 12 in New Town to provide oxygen supply to Covid patients.
Opened by NKDA chairman Debashis Sen, the camp has 10 beds with piped oxygen supply system attached with each bed. “There are many Covid-positive patients who require oxygen support. The idea is that Covid patients who are in urgent need of oxygen can come here and take oxygen under medical supervision till the person gets admitted to a hospital,” said an NKDA official.
Meanwhile, the opening of second walk-in RT PCR centre on Tuesday had to be postponed due to heavy rains.It will be opened on Wednesday, officials said.
