The government of Jammu and Kashmir after monitoring the situation post covid infections has decided to strengthen health infrastructure in rural areas.
In this connection recently Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha held a series of meetings with health officials and other wings of the government especially Deputy Commissioners to have better healthcare in rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir.
He approved rupees one lac from district capex budget for each panchayat to set up five bedded covid care centres. In each such health centre at the panchayat level there would be one oxygen supported bed for immediate patient care in that village.
Though it is late now, the government of Jammu and Kashmir is trying to fight back the second wave of covid-19 especially in the rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Jammu and Kashmir administration has come under sharp criticisms on different social media platforms for its lax response to the initial spread of the virus.
The Jammu and Kashmir administration was not seriously testing the travellers and tourists especially who came to Kashmir by road during spring season.
Similarly thousands of the skilled and unskilled labourers were allowed to move Kashmir and Ladakh without proper testing and quarantine.
