Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, JANUARY 20: Due to shortage in Power supply, the Oxygen Plant at Dr.Motsuo Memorial District Hospital, Wokha, remains non-functional. The Plant was installed in October last year.
According to a DIPR bulletin on Thursday, the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Wokha, Dr. Tumchobeni Kikon, while presenting the district’s COVID-19 scenario at the monthly District Planning and Development Board (DPDB) meeting held on January 20, stated that the Oxygen Plant remains non-functional due to shortage in Power supply and sought the intervention of the Board.
While deliberating on the issue, the Deputy Commissioner of Wokha, OrenthungLotha said that despite repeated efforts by the Board and the District Task Force for COVID-19, installation of a separate transformer for the hospital was unsuccessful.
The Board has requested the Power Department to install the transformer at the earliest “as various healthcare equipments/facilities installed at the hospital have become non-functional”.
The CMO also requested all concerned to spread awareness, encourage and motivate citizens to get vaccinated as the Department will be conducting colony-wise vaccination drive from next week.
During the meeting, the Board recommended the registration of society ~ NM Foundation, Pangti Village ~ for consideration to higher authority.
