The second wave of Covid-19 has not even ebbed that the leading experts of the nation sounded alarm bells for a possible third wave and its possible disproportionate impact on vulnerable groups like children. This could put the rural healthcare system under pressure again. Hence, before the third wave, we need to be prepared for minimizing the impact of the pandemic on innocent lives.
In this case, Mukti engaged field workers to identify the most affected areas. After the survey Mukti came to know that Namkhana and Kakdwip are the two blocks where the epidemic is advancing at an unstoppable pace. Mukti decided to send oxygen concentrators to the healthcare centers in these two blocks before the third wave arrives.
Mr. Jagannath Jana, team member of Mukti and the convener organized a meeting on 08th September 2021, Wednesday, 2 pm at Kakdwip super-specialist hospital community hall where he deployed the OCs to the 5 Gram Panchayat Chiefs (Pradhans) of Patharpratima and Kakdwip block under the supervision of Mr. Avirup Mondal, the ACMOH (Assistance Chief Medical Officer of Health) of Kakdwip sub-divisional hospital and Mr. Krishnendu Roy, the Super of Kakdwip super-specialist hospital.
