Haldia/Jalpaiguri: The central team visiting East Midnapore on Monday to assess Covid-19 management in Haldia and Panskura was accompanied by BSF jawans. No state police personnel was seen with the Inter-Ministerial Central Team (IMCT) in Haldia.
The four-member team touring north Bengal was particularly irked to see a crowded Dinbazar in Jalpaiguri even at 2.30pm. “There is ample room to improve enforcement of lockdown in all three districts — Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Jalpaiguri — we visited,” team leader Vineet Joshi said.
In south Bengal, the five-member central team touring Covid hotspots reached East Midnapore’s Panskura around 10.30am. Its convoy of six vehicles headed straight to the Panskura corona centre, a Covid hospital that was till a few weeks ago the Boroma hospital, a private healthcare facility.
Led by Apurva Chandra, additional secretary to GoI, the team members, wearing plastic shoes and caps, went around the wards and inspected the infrastructure. No state official was present during the team’s visit.
About half an hour later, the team left for Haldia, where it inspected for about 15 minutes a Covid quarantine centre at the Balaji hostel of Haldia Institute of Technology. The team next visited the quarantine centre housed at the Sati Samanta Trade Centre. At the Haldia subdivisional hospital, the members toured the facility and spoke to its superintendent.
The north Bengal team visited Jalpaiguri’s Kadamtala and then the Covid hospital housed at the Biswa Bangla Kirangan, where members toured the room for doctors and nurses.
With Jalpaiguri hospital superintendent Dayaram Naskar accompanying them, the members also toured the hospital’s Severe Acute Respiratory Infection (Sari) unit that houses 34 patients at present. Team leader Joshi expressed satisfaction over the infrastructure.
