Telangana CS visits Boggulakunta urban Primary health centre
Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar IAS today visited Boggulakunta urban primary health centre to see the functioning of the covid outpatient services which were started in all the Government Hospitals, sub centres and PHCs across the state. He went through the health centre and enquired about the arrangements made for starting outpatient services. Doctors informed that regular services are being provided in the health centre while covid outpatient services are being provided in a community hall nearby. This is being done to avoid crowding.
Chief Secretary stressed the need to focus on treatment of all patients by providing medical kits to all those who have symptoms and not to wait for test reports. If the fever persists for more than four days then the patients should be administered steroids by which we can save people from breathlessness and hospital beds etc, he observed.
Secretary Health S.A.M.Rizvi, Commissioner GHMC Lokesh Kumar, Zonal Commissioner Pravinya, Director Public Health Srinivas Rao and other senior officials were present.
