Nagda (Ujjain district, Madhya Pradesh): MLA Dilip Singh Gurjar donated Rs 55 lakh for a 10 bedded ICU ward in Bima Hospital and Rs 15 lakh for a 5 bedded ICU ward in the civil hospital of Khachrod on Tuesday.
Gurjar said due to pandemic and increasing infection in the area, the number of serious corona patients is increasing every day due to which beds are not available in the hospitals and people are facing difficulties in getting treatment.
Keeping that in mind, 10 bedded ICU ward in Bima Hospital Nagda will start soon. A 5 bedded ICU ward in the Civil Hospital of Khachrod will be set up soon and it will also have all the necessary equipment for treatment of critical Covid patients, Gurjar said.
At present, serious corona patients of Nagda-Khachrod and surrounding areas go to Ujjain, Indore and Ratlam for treatment.
Gurjar further said that the government hospital building worth Rs 95 lakh is ready in Champakheda village. But due to lack of doctors and other staff, the building is of no use.
“If district collector immediately arranges for the doctors and other staff, then a Covid Centre can be set up and the people of the area and nearby villages will get treatment there,” he added. Funds will be made available from the MLA fund for whatever material is required, he further said.
