5-bedded isolation centre in Jammu mocks authorities’ tall claims


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a 5-bedded isolation centre set up inside a government school in Ban Sultan area of Jammu mocks the tall claims of the administration about it providing all facilities to the COVID-19 patients.

A detailed report carried by a local news channel depicted how poorly the isolation centre is being managed at Ban-Sultan in Mira Sahib area of Jammu.

Five low quality beds with white sheets, mattresses and pillows have been set up in a dingy room in the school, it added.

The report said, not a single employee from the Health Department was present there. “The isolation centre lacks cleanliness and one couldn’t see any oxygen cylinder or any other facility there. It appears that the facility has been set up and then abandoned,” it deplored.

The Sarpanch of Ban Sultan village, Advocate Devraj said, “This facility is not worth. He said, “If anyone comes to the isolation centre, he will not get well. It’s unfortunate that there is no one except a peon.

This centre is just eyewash. We will stage a peaceful protest against the lackadaisical attitude of the authorities. We have to answer the people and we have no explanation to offer.

The Sarpanch demanded that two vaccination centres should be set up in the area. “At present no one is being vaccinated in Ban-Sultan and adjoining areas,” he added.—KMS
