Bhubaneswar: Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik Saturday inaugurated two Covid Hospitals at Behampur in Ganjam district
Speaking on this occasion, Patnaik said, “I am happy to declare that two more Covid Hospitals with ICU facility are made functional in Berhampur. These hospitals with 150 bed strength and 24 ICU beds each with ventilators will provide critical care for patients from the district within the district itself. This will definitely strengthen our hands in the fight against Covid in Ganjam district.”

“After Unlock one, lacs of brothers and sisters living outside the State returned to Ganjam district, especially from Hotspot areas. However, thanks to the dedication and sacrifice of our Covid warriors, cooperation and support from my beloved people of Ganjam district, the district is fighting the pandemic very well. More than 85 percent of rural Ganjam is in green zone and the recovery rate in Ganjam is much higher than the national average. I also understand that there is a downward trend in ‘Positi ity’ rate.”
