In addition to the 2 Dialysis machines already installed in view of the COVID-19 investigation, 10 more new dialysis machines have also been arrived and installed. Except for the MRI, all installed technologies will start functioning within the next few days, Dr. Santa added.

Mentioned may be made that over 50 (fifty) more ventilators have so far arrived at RIMS and is ready to use at any time when called for.
