GOA: In light of the rising Covid-19 graph, the state government should immediately declare Goa Medical College and Hospital’s (GMC) super-specialty block as a dedicated hospital to treat Covid-19 patients, said Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte.
Khaunte also demanded that to support and provide relief to GMC’s doctors, the state government should seek assistance from the Indian Army Medical Corps. “The new GMC hospital should become a dedicated Covid hospital and the military should be asked to handle it,” Khaunte said. “GMC should be restored to treat ailments and illnesses other than Covid.” Khaunte said that because of the rising number of cases and with three wards at GMC being reserved for Covid-19 patients, Goans with other ailments were reluctant to visit GMC for treatment.
