Manipur: IAS officers assigned to monitor COVID patients treatment in hospitals

Noting seriously the rapid rise in the number of death cases of COVID-19 patients in the state, the Manipur government on Thursday assigned two IAS officers to monitor the healthcare delivery to the COVID-19 patients.

An official source said that the state government has deputed two commissioners to look after the healthcare delivery system and monitor the healthcare facilities being provided to COVID-19 patients at Regional Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) and Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS), the two important hospitals where special wards to treat the COVID-19 infected patients are being treated.

As per an order issued by the secretary (Health) of the state government, commissioner (RD and PR) Nithi Kesarwani has been deputed at RIMS hospital while commissioner (Education) T Ranjit at JNIMS hospital.

In view of the problems being faced in the admission of COVID-19 infected patients, the state government has also started taking up processes for conversion of Hotel Imphal at North AOC as Covid care centre.

The state has been witnessing a rapid rise in the number of COVID-19 cases among the general population amid experts’ fears of community transmission taking place in the state.
