Imphal, May 11:

The committee constituted by the government of Manipur for admission to COVID Care center as well as to the Hospital for treatment is a total flop, said MLA of Thangmeiband Assembly Constituency Khumukcham Joykishan while talking to a group media persons today.
He said that the telephone and the cell phone number provided for communication with the Committee often delay in picking up calls from even an MLA and the procedures for admission to either the CCC or at the Hospitals are too long and as a matter there are possibilities that people succumbed to Covid, said the MLA. Giving an example, he said that yesterday 13 (Thirteen people) of Thangmeiband Assembly constituency were tested positive with Covid-19 and among them 6 of them have agreed to undergo Home isolation and the 7 others have been taken to CCC at Bal Bhavan at late hours due to non-availability of Ambulance. At Bal Bhavan, those officials let the seven persons waited inside the ambulance for hours on the ground that they didn’t have proper permission from the Admission committee. MLA Joykishan said that when those in need of medical care are left to wait for such a long time, how on the earth will the patient survive?
“When they should be provided immediate assistant , how could they let the patients unattended for around 5 hours just because for lack of formalities”, Joykishan asked.
Even if there are beds available those patients were let waited for hours just because the Admission committee delayed in completing the formalities , the MLA said. He added that the private hospitals have increased the bed for Covid patients , but immediate admission can never be done due to the failure to act in time by the Admission committee.
Regarding the Vaccination, MLA Khumukcham Joykishan said that earlier the government had stated that there will be no shortages of Covid vaccines. Now again they said that only 150 person can be vaccinated at each centers. And there is only one vaccination centers for the Thangmeiband Assembly constituency and as of now there are around 15,000 people still yet to be vaccinated.
Joykishan said that if supposed 150 persons have been vaccinated a day and minus the holidays, it will take at least 4 months to vaccinate the remaining people. And so if the 2nd dose have to be vaccinated , it will take around 8 months. Again if those 18 years above and 40 years below have to be vaccinated it will take around 1 years and 6 months. How will a person be protected during this 1 years and 6 months, Joykishan question the government and demanded a white paper on both the modalities of the vaccination programme as well as the Covid admission committee.
