The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has agreed to supply oxygen concentrators at their doorsteps to Covid-19 patients who have chosen to continue under home treatment.
Sanjay Singh, the newly appointed BMC Commissioner, stated that the service will begin in the Capital City on Monday.
As a result, the state government has equipped the BMC with 100 oxygen concentrators. Employees at the Call Centre have been trained to explain oxygen concentrators to consumers.
“The BMC has received 100 oxygen concentrators from the Odisha government. We’ve also created an app for Covid-infected people who are being treated at home. They may reserve oxygen concentrators using the application, and the BMC will deliver them to their houses. On Monday, the service will go live, “Singh said.
In the last 15 days, the BMC has launched a large vaccination campaign targeting various groups.
The BMC will undertake a special campaign to provide the second dosage of Covaxin to recipients aged 18 to 44 years old. It will launch a special drive for people who received the first dosage on May 3, 4, or 5, from June 8 to 9 at various vaccination centres in the Capital City.
“Those between the ages of 18 and 44 who received the first dosage of Covaxin will be given the second dosage on a first-come, first-served basis,” Singh added.
Similarly, the municipal corporation has initiated a special effort today to provide the second dosage of the vaccination to the city’s frontline warriors.
