Udupi: District in-charge minister Basavaraj Bommai ordered district officials to allocate ten beds in the district hospital here for treating black fungus patients.

Bommai conducted a review meeting with Deputy Commissioner G Jagadeesha and other officials through a video link from Bengaluru on Monday.

The minister said that one person has died of black fungus in the Udupi district and another has been sent to Wenlock Hospital in Mangaluru for treatment. Hence, there is a need for setting up reserve beds for black fungus cases.

“Drugs needed to treat Black Fungus will be supplied to the district soon. As patients from other districts too are coming to Udupi for Black Fungus treatment so an adequate amount of medicines will be supplied,” he said.

The minister also instructed DC Jagadeesha to ensure that all patients undergoing COVID-19 treatment are treated under the Aayushamn Bharat Aarogy Karnataka scheme and asked him to order all private hospitals to also do so.

He also asked the officials to ensure that the Village-level Task Force on COVID-19 management is more active in visiting homes of the infected and checking their health status and admitting them to COVID Care Centres if necessary.

Also speaking at the meeting MLC Pratap Chandra Shetty said that a grant of Rs 50,000 must be provided to gram panchayats for managing the Task Force.

The video was also attended by MLA Raghupati Bhat, MLA Lalaji Mendon, Coastal Development Authority Chairman Mattaru Ratnakar Hegde, Zilla Panchayat CEO Dr Naveen Bhat, District Health Officer Dr Sudhir Chandra Suda and other officials.
