18 oxygen concentrators connected at Mahakali Hospital

Mahendranagar: 18 oxygen concentrators have been installed at Mahakali Hospital in Kanchanpur on Monday. Medical Superintendent of Mahakali Hospital, Dr. Hari Kumar Shrestha, said that oxygen concentrators from the center were installed at the hospital due to the increasing number of COVID-19 patients and lack of oxygen.

“18 oxygen concentrators received from the health service department have now been connected,” he said, adding that “this will facilitate the treatment of the infected.” He said that currently the patients are being treated at Mahakali Hospital by supplying oxygen from Nepalgunj and Dhangadhi.

“With the help of UNICEF, the hospital will now supply oxygen,” said Dr. Shrestha. He further added they’re getting help from the local citizens, private organizations, and local government. The infected are being treated at the hospital’s temporary Corona Hospital, ICU, and emergency room. The ICU room of the six-bed hospital has been full of infected people since the second wave of corona started.

Meanwhile, the Health Office, Kanchanpur, has stated that 115 people, including men and women, have lost their lives in the second wave of corona infection in Kanchanpur. Chief of the office Shivaraj Sunar said that more than 5,000 people are currently infected in the district.

“Antigen and PCR tests have shown that more than 5,000 people have been infected here,” he said. He said that corona testing is being done daily at Gauriphanta and Gaddachauki checkpoints of Nepalese returning home from India.
