He informed that along with the use of various medicines, the patient is being treated with the help of equipment and treatment methods according to the disease. For the past two years, the number of people seeking treatment and consultation at the health center was increasing.

The information officer Jha informed that funds have been requested from the state government for the purchase of medicines but have not been received yet. He also said that due to the lack of manpower in the health center, there is also a problem in the performance of the work.
