Patiala, May 28
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Bibi Jagir Kaur inaugurated ninth Covid care centre at the Panth Ratan Gurcharan Singh Tohra Institute in the city today. She said the Covid-19 situation had brought to fore lack of facilities at government hospitals.
The SGPC would soon establish the third oxygen generation plant, she added. “Soon, we will provide 100 ventilators for the public,” she said.
Had the government been vigilant before the second wave, people would not have lost their lives, she added.
“Patients are getting treatment at the Covid care centres and going back home in good health,” she said.
Former Member of Parliament Prem Singh Chandumajra and SAD Patiala president Surjit Singh Rakhra were also present on the occasion.
