Finally, after the deaths of more than 75 Covid patients in the Goa Medical College, many of whom died due to the lack of proper oxygen pressure, the state government woke up and made the arrangements of around 350 patients into the newly commissioned Super Speciality block of the Goa Medical College.
According to the reports, At least 350 COVID-19 patients have been shifted to the Goa Medical College and Hospital’s new super-speciality block, state Health Minister Vishwajit Rane said on Saturday.
It may be recalled that the Super Speciality Block of the Goa Medical College was commissioned last week to reduce the burden on the GMC hospital where several wards are being used to treat infected patients.
At present, we have shifted about 350 patients in coordination with GVK EMRI 108 and they have been monitored & supervised by our team at the Super Specialty Block.
