CPM demanded medical camps in the villages as the corona epidemic continues to increase in the district.
In his petition to the Collector, party district secretary A. Raghuraman said ”The unused TB Sanatorium campus in the Erode Government Medical College Hospital campus, Perundurai, should be completely converted into a corona treatment center.
As the hospital has been shifted as Corona Treatment Center, the outpatient department has to be shifted to another area. All physicians working in the hospital should be transferred to corona treatment work.
The working hours of frontline personnel should be regularized as the incidence of infection has increased. Vaccination should be intensified.
Medical camps should be conducted in rural areas of the district by a mobile medical monitoring team as in the case of Erode town. The district administration should take appropriate action to control the Corona 2nd wave, he added.
