VIJAYAWADA: Transport Minister Perni Nani said on Wednesday that an oxygen plant will be set up in Machilipatnam very soon with the support of BHEL and it will become operational in four days.
Perni Nani conducted a review meeting with the district officials at the Collector's camp office in Vijayawada on Wednesday. He reviewed the Covid cases, infrastructure facilities in the Covid hospitals, treatment and other related issues.
Speaking on the occasion, Perni Nani said the state government is taking steps to ensure treatment to all Covid patients in the State.
He said the Covid Care Centre will be inaugurated in Police Kalyana Mandapam in Machilipatnam in one or two days. He said the care centre will have 26 oxygen beds, 10 other beds, one ventilator and three doctors and 15 other staff.
