Mangaluru: MP Nalin’s visit to Wenlock Hospital clears misgivings in people's minds

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Mar 24: In the midst of mounting tensions in the minds of the general public about coronavirus, some miscreants worked to complicate the matter by indulging in spreading misconception about the functioning of district government Wenlock Hospital here through misleading posts in social websites on Monday, March 23.

MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, was in New Delhi on Monday in view of the ongoing parliamentary session. On learning that the people in his Lok Sabha constituency, Dakshina Kannada, are concerned about the improper way in which coronavirus suspects are being treated in the district Wenlock Hospital, he immediately travelled to Bengaluru from New Delhi and reached here by road.

On his arrival here, Nalin directly went to Wenlock Hospital. He summoned deputy commissioner, district health officer, superintendent of the hospital and other officials to the spot and held consultation with them. Deputy commissioner of Dakshina Kannada district Sindhu B Rupesh, who gave information to the MP, brought to his notice that a separate block has been set aside for treating people suspected to have contracted coronavirus infection. She told him that only one person in the district has so far been diagnosed as coronavirus positive and the other corona suspect has been kept under close observation. She said that the hospital has facility to keep about 200 coronavirus suspects in intensive care. So, she asserted that there is no reason for the people to become panicky.

Nalin Kumar Kateel, who also happens to be the state BJP president, by his swift action, removed the misconception people had about the functioning of the hospital. He has asked the people not to lend an ear to rumours and assured them that the district administrate, state, and the central government are totally committed to care for the health of the people. His visit here has brought curtains on the confusion created in the minds of the people by some miscreants.

    Mask is meant especially for the one who is sick to avoid the spread when u cough n sneeze . Imagine ur wearing it .. wat about ur body parts ur hands they r still exposed . Sitting in gulf countries u shud get educated first . This virus is not airborne it can't travel more than half a metre unless the guy is close enough which u can avoid by keeping distance. And Christians n muslims who r anti govt . Pls keep ur hatred aside . It's clealry reflecting in ur words

    They might arranged all these facilities after being exposed.. Facts is district administration is not serious enough about pandemic. The woman in the voice is whistleblower. Every corporator / public representative should visit Wenlock and ensure arrangements and demand for Covid-19 test labs in their respective areas. It's late already, still in our hand.

    In the clip two ladies were talking about health & safety issues of the workers and general public who visit this hospital. There may be some truth in it. Nalin will not come running from Delhi just like that.

    Things will improve soon, It was a good decision of Nalin visiting hospital, all will be alert now.

    At the same time Govt should give moral support and hike perks for all employees in the hospitals who are working to curb these menace

    My questions.
    1. Why one of the ladies is not wearing face mask?
    2. Why the MP is wearing the mask with nose open? Is it for namesake? Doesn't it give a wrong message to public?
    3. Why our DC is wearing face mask? Isn't she healthy? A few days ago she said healthy people need not wear masks!!!

    Good Job from MP.
    It is re assuring to the General Public and hope the issue in hand will be taken very seriously by all concerned.
    Hope the administration officials of the district will also bring to his notice any requirements needed for the hospital to better fight the decease as the cases of death among medical personnel is very high in corona affected countries.
    Take precaution, stay safe and pray for the passing of this pandemic without any more loss.
