With an objective of providing early treatment to Covid patients and to prepare for the possible third wave of pandemic, the Department of Wakf, Minority along with NGOs and philanthropists of the city have decided open a new Covid Care Centre in a hostel belonging to the department of minorities.

The CCC, which is expected to be opened in a couple of days as the preparations are underway, will have 80 beds for the Covid patients.

Informing about this, District Wakf Instructor Mohsin Jamkhandi said that the CCCs are being set up in various districts as per the government order.

“In Vijayapura city, CCC was planned to be opened but initially we found difficulty in getting a building that meets the requirement for opening of CCC here”, he said.

The official said that finally, senior IAS officer and former Deputy Commissioner of Vijayapura, Mohammed Mohsin coordinated with the department of Minorities and got the permission to open CCC in one of the hostels at Tekade Galli area of the city.

He said that NGOs and individual philanthropists joined hands in opening of the centre.

Abdul Hamid Mushrif, Congress leader and one of the philanthropists who has been taking lead in opening of the CCC, said that he has contacted the doctors who are ready to give their services at the centre.

He informed that NGOs and associations such as Muslim Muttahida Council and Centre for Non-formal Education have extended financial aid for the CCC.

“We have contacted the doctors of the city and they agreed to provide the service at the CCC. Other medical staff will be provided them”, he said.

He said that the objective of opening the centre is to provide early treatment to Covid patients by isolating them.

“We have been seeing that many poor people have smaller homes where it is nearly impossible to have a separate room for isolation as most poor people have either one or two rooms. In order to isolate them and to ensure that they get early treatment, the CCC has been planned. The patient will be shifted to Covid hospitals if the situation demands”, he said.

Mushrif said that since the possible third wave could affect children also, if needed, the same CCC could be used to treat Covid infected children as well.
