Panaji: The Ponda Sub District Hospital is all set to resume its casualty and OPD facilities for the public on January 4, five months after it was converted into a Covid hospital in view of the rise in cases of Covid-19 in the State.

“Medical equipment and machinery, which were shifted to Dilasa Hospital, Farmagudi, have been brought back to the Sub District Hospital. We will commence casualty and all kinds of OPDs from January 4 onwards,” Medical Superintendent Dr Vikas Kuvelkar said adding that the number of Covid-19 patients availing treatment in the hospital has decreased.

“Those few Covid patients availing treatment at the Ponda Sub District have been shifted to the South Goa District Hospital, Margao,” he added. He stated that Margao South Goa District Hospital will be the only hospital that will treat Covid patients.

 

It may be recalled that residents of Ponda had to face the brunt as Sub District Hospital was the lone Hospital in Ponda which provided medical facilities. When the government had converted the Sub District Hospital into Covid-19 hospital in August last year, the people of Ponda were upset and had even protested by gathering in front of hospital premises.

 

During these months, people from the taluka, who were dependent on the Sub District Hospital for medical facilities, were forced to take another bus to visit Dilasa Hospital at Farmagudi where the Sub District Hospital facilities were shifted.  Dilasa Hospital was made available as an alternate arrangement.
