Why so much vacant beds in govt. open CCC?
IT Desk

Intention of the government of Manipur for curbing the Covid-19 pandemic is crystal clear. In the last couple of weeks , when the 2nd wave started haunting the state, with the number of positive cases sky rocketing, the state authority had established 14 Covid Care Center (CCC) at important locations of the state. Besides, the government understanding the fact that Vaccination is one solution that can contain the virus from causing severe infection had stated vaccination. To be précised the government under the supervision of the incumbent Chief Minister N. Biren Singh who is also in charge of the State Health Department had frame almost necessity committee to make sure that all those infected with the Covid -19 pandemic received proper treatment.
However one thing that the government seems to have forgotten is that while preparing to fight the invisible enemy, it requires some specialist and well experience professionals to lead the army. As far as Imphal Times knows none of the committee form for countering the spread of the dreaded virus has been headed by any professional who are well experience in the field of fighting the pandemic. For example, for fighting the war against the Covid -19 pandemic it is important that the team of the army be led by some professional and well experience professionals who have adequate knowledge of the Community Medicines. Besides, the roles of Epidemiologists are vital at this crucial time. Even as the state government’s intention to contain the virus is felt by everyone, it is unlikely that the war against the Pandemic is not going to win as the state authority have chosen wrong general to lead the war.
It is on record that amidst the curfew and the imposition of containment zone at almost all the areas of the state, the total number of people infected by the corona virus and tested Covid-19 positive in eleven days staring from May 2 was 5,671 and the number of people succumbed to the Covid 19 was 126.
As per press statement released yesterday (May 14) total number of Active cases is 5898, among these 176 are from among the security personnel.
Now as per an information uploaded by the Advisor of the health department, MLA Sapam Ranjan, there are 1099 vacant bed in all the 14 CCC open in the state as of 4.pm May 14 , i.e . yesterday. As per the information 567 beds remain vacant at CCC Lamboi KKK, in Imphal West. At Balbhavan the number of vacancy is 91 , at CCC NSU the number of unoccupied bed is 63 and at all the remaining CCC the number of vacant bed is 2 digits exept at CCC II Centre RD Wing , CCC Lanva TD Block , CCpur and CCC GNM Hostel , Thoubal.
When the number of active positive cases reaches 5898 , and when the JNIMS Hospital is reported crowded with Covid -19 infected people, and when the RIMS Covid –ward is full with positive cases, what has wrong with the policy to the opening of the 14 CCC. Is it because the people tested positive with the Covid felt that they will face inconveniences while staying at these CCC open by the government as they do not provide meals or breakfast. Or is it because there are no medical attendance. Many things that has been left out need to be reviewed. After all we all know that there are not so many people who can afford self isolation at their respective house except some rich people .
