GOA: Admitting that amenities at the ESI Hospital in Margao — the sole dedicated Covid-19 facility in the state — needed improvement, health minister Vishwajit Rane said the government plans to upgrade it.
He also announced that each taluka would soon have a Covid care centre for which the support of local MLAs was required, and said that such centres were needed more than an additional Covid hospital.
“There is opposition sometimes, but when people from our constituencies get Covid, we need to keep them. That is why we need a Covid care centre in every taluka so people can be treated and monitored there itself,” Rane said.
