Srikakulam: Covid patients will be treated at three hospitals in the district's Palasa municipal town and surrounding areas. The district headquarters of Srikakulam is 80 kilometers away from Palasa.
With the increase in the number of cases in the town, there's a severe dearth of beds. So, beginning Sunday, district officials will offer medical care for Covid at three hospitals in and around Palasa municipal town.
On Saturday, Minister for Animal Husbandry S Appalaraju visited Palasa government hospital, Haripuram community health center, and another private hospital, UPV Multi-Specialty hospital.
"We are planning to start treatment for covid patients at Palasa for the benefit of Covid-affected patients in the area and to reduce the pressure on district headquarters," Appalaraju said.
