Punjab Chief Secretary Ms. Vini Mahajan today directed all the Deputy Commissioners to make more frequent visits to hospitals in their respective districts to review the arrangements and to ensure the best possible care to COVID-19 patients. These directions came in a video conferencing (VC) meeting with all the DCs, Commissioners of Police, SSPs, Commissioners of MC and Civil Surgeons to review the arrangements in the state hospitals.
