In view of growing cases of Covid-19 infections, Paradip Port Trust has established a 50 bedded Covid Care Center at the “Port Club”, for its employees, which became functional on 3 August 2020.
Shri Rinkesh Roy, Chairman, PPT assured that PPT will leave unturned to fight the pandemic. In view of rapid growth in corona patients, the state govt. has asked the corporates to make their own covid care center.
Asymptotic or Port employees having mild symptoms will be housed in the center and they will be provided with the face mask to cover their nose and face. Home isolation for mild/asymptomatic cases is recommended, if a separate room with toilet facility is available under the same roof. All the houses in Port Township don’t have such facilities. Besides in a building, there are 4 to 6 quarters. If anybody is legally subjected to home isolation, all other families in the same building might be in dilemma. Hence mild or asymptomatic people may be in a better condition at this new Covid Care Center. The biomedical waste will be safely disposed of following the Biomedical Waste Management Act. All protocols of Covid Management will be strictly followed.
