Mangaluru, May 17: Mohiuddin Bava has come up with a unique project to help people in distress during this pandemic. Known for his social work, Bava has now opened Covid care centers in 10 different places in his constituency. Each center is equipped with doctors, nurses, support staff, beds, and other required equipment. Food and other support will also be provided. After obtaining required permissions from the district administration, Bava has set up these centers which will help to isolate patients, thereby breaking the chain of spread.
The first center was inaugurated at Katipalla, Suratkal on Mondau May 17 by eminent doctor Dr Manjunath. Speaking on this occasion, Dr Manjunath appreciated Bava's approach towards the pandemic. He further said this will be like a support system to the existing medical facilities in the district.
Mohiuddin Bava said, “Corona has caused a lot of distress to general public. The virus spreads through contact and the only way to reduce this, is by early isolation of Covid positive patients. Some patients stay in very small houses and there are high chances of spreading to family members. It is more dangerous if there are old members in family. We are made arrangements in best possible way. In this time of pandemic, let us all help each other and come out of this."
The total cost of this project will be around Rs 40-45 lac including arrangements, equipment, salaries and other expenses.
