GOA: With the ongoing renovation work still in progress, the opening of the old building of Ponda’s community health centre (CHC) is likely to be further delayed. The internal work of the flooring is still pending and could take a couple of days to complete, said a PWD official.
After the sub-district hospital in Ponda began operating as a Covid hospital from August 11, the health department authorities decided to reutilise the abandoned building of the old CHC to commence out-patient departments (OPDs). The OPDs were to commence on August 29. Renovation work which is being undertaken by the PWD at a cost Rs 9 lakh, includes cleaning, painting, changing some floor tiles and covering the roof with plastic sheets.
