Nadda announces trauma centre for Gurugram

IANS  |  Gurugram 

Gurugram will get a trauma centre and a team from the central government will soon visit the city to identify the best location for this, said here on Saturday.

said that the Delhi-Jaipur National Highway-48 was an accident-prone route and thus Gurugram needed a trauma centre since private hospitals here charge over Rs 15 lakh even for treatment of viral fever.

Nadda was here to inaugurate a camp to coincide with the National Deworming Day at the in Sector 43.

Children in the age group of 1 to 19 will be given medicines for deworming across the country.

In the first phase in February, nearly 32 crore children will be covered and another 50 crore in the second phase. The programme was started in 2015.

Very young children will be administered syrup, while older ones will be given albendazole tablets.

The Aanganwadi and Asha workers were asked to visit labour colonies and construction sites so as to cover the slum children under the drive. In case some children miss the dose, they can get the same on February 15.

Gurugram MP and Union for Planning, Chemicals and Fertilisers said that after independence, the people's age had increased but health had declined.
