Mangaluru, Jun 27: Dakshina Kannada district in-charge minister Kota Srinivas Poojary, said that inpatient services will become available in the district Wenlock Hospital here soon.

He was speaking after presiding over a meeting about COVID-19 management at the office of the district deputy commissioner on Friday June 26.

"As the district Wenlock Hospital was converted into COVID hospital, other services had been suspended here. The district administration has realised that this has been resulting in problems for the general public. Therefore, necessary steps have been taken to ensure that a 100-bed inpatient facility begins to serve the public soon," he explained.

Poojary said that the district currently has 142 coronavirus active cases and 370 have been discharged from the hospital. Ten have lost their lives. Four private and a government laboratory have been conducting coronavirus tests in the district, he informed.

Deputy commissioner Sindhu B Rupesh, informed that coronavirus patients can also directly get admitted into private hospitals and get treated but they have to bear the treatment expense on their own. She said that those who are desirous of getting covered under Ayushman Bharat scheme have to get treatment at private hospitals with recommendation letter from the health department.

MLAs Umanath Kotian and Dr Y Bharath Shetty, additional deputy commissioner M J Roopa and district surveillance officer Dr Jagadeesh, were present.
