Haryana Health Minister, Anil Vij, on Friday, conducted a surprise inspection of Panchkula Civil Hospital in Sector 6, during which he examined the functioning of the PSA Oxygen Plant and also took stock of the health services in the hospital.
The minister has been conducting several surprise inspections across the state ever since Covid cases continue to rise in the country and Haryana.
During Friday’s inspection, Vij interacted with the operator of the PSA plant and also took information regarding the functioning of equipment related to the plant, while giving out necessary guidelines to the officers present so that there is no problem in near future.
While talking to media persons, after conducting the inspection, Vij said that the state’s second genome sequencing lab will be set up in Panchkula. He said that with the establishment of the laboratory in Panchkula, there would be one laboratory at both ends of the state. Haryana already has a genome sequencing lab in Rohtak.
