More Corona care centres to come up in Shillong


Shillong, July 14: The Meghalaya government has decided to increase the number of Corona care centres in Shillong following the rise of COVID-19 positive cases recently.

Deputy chief minister, Prestone Tynsong told reporters on Tuesday that during the review meeting, the government has discussed that more Corona care centres in Shillong should be set up in order to keep COVID-19 positive patients.

So far, IIM Umsawli is the only Corona care centre in Shillong.

Director health services (MI) Dr Aman War said that earlier the state government had already identified NIFT, MATI at Mawdiangdiang, and Assam Regimental Centre at Lawsohtun as Corona care centres.
But as the number of positive cases was low in the last few months, Dr War said that the centres have not been utilised.
