A 12-bed COVID-19 isolation ward has been set up at the District Hospital, Doti. The hospital decided to ensure a dedicated isolation facility bearing in mind the increased risk of infection in the district.

In recent days, most migrant workers returned from India have tested corona positive, Hospital Management Committee Chair Yagyaraj Joshi said. He also added that the isolation ward is equipped with an oxygen support system.

A medical team is available round-the-clock to handle the ward, said COVID Focal Person Tej Bahadur Shahi.

The District Administration Office, Doti has urged all nine local governments in the district to ensure isolation facilities.

Though the administration has decided to keep India-returnees in quarantine centres for certain days, the local levels have not been able to set up quarantine centres due to budgetary issues. The Province Health Directorate of Dipayal, Rajpur said eight India-returnees succumbed to the coronavirus here in the past one month. Most government-run hospitals are packed with Covid-19 infected.
