Speaking at the event, CM khandu said,“During the second wave of the pandemic, the importance of oxygen in our fight against COVID-19 became clear. Fortunately, I was forewarned by experts and was able to prepare 100 oxygen beds prior to the resurgence of the pandemic in our state. We now have over 1,000 oxygen beds available for the needy. “We will make certain that no patient dies as a result of a lack of oxygen,” reported Arunachal Times.


The Chief Minister further stated that all of the district hospitals are being upgraded in terms of both personnel and equipment. 

He urged the respective legislators and district administrations to establish timetable and strictly monitor progress.


Alongside district hospitals, one hospital in each of the 60 assembly constituencies will be upgraded with the necessary infrastructure and equipment, CM Khandu added.

He said he have asked the legislators to identify one hospital in each of their respective constituencies, in consultation with district officials.

“Upgrading work will most likely begin this year,” he stated.
