“In this times of hardship and struggle by human race due to COVID-19 pandemic, I am happy to see many NGOs, Churches and individuals coming forward to assist, help the State government and the department in particular through various means,” said Nagaland’s Health & Family Welfare Minister, S Pangnyu Phom, on Wednesday.

He said this after inaugurating the 50 bedded Covid Ward at District Hospital Dimapur (DHD). Acknowledging the kind gestures and contributions from all corners to fight against the pandemic, Pangnyu said he was overwhelmed to see the work of the Round Table India (RTI) ushering a commendable job under the mission “one more breathe” initiated by the Indian Red Cross Society Dimapur District, by providing adequate and required medical equipment in bulk. 

He appreciated and hailed the two organizations for their valuable work towards uplifting the health sector and also for shouldering through times together.

“You have shown a good example and have walked an extra mile towards humanity which will be imprinted in history we are facing today, Pangnyu said at the same time added “as we are here with COVID-19, battling and countering with all efforts and powers we have, we still have to go on fighting and shielding for the safety of our people. The assistance we receive today will tremendously help the needy people in a larger scale, comfortably and resourcefully.”

He also said that the environment and the world we live in has become different for which one needs to cope with it by way of self-disciplining, following laid down SOPs at first hand. Stating that in times many face numerous allegations and criticisms which are sometimes destructive and constructive from our common people, Pangnyu also added that we never put ourselves down, instead, we are wakened and strengthen more by the voices people make like the action of the team.

He said his department always try to pick the constructive criticism and put it into action for more progressive and achievement especially in the health sector and also make use of the destructive criticism as a supporting tool in making a “holistic strategy” especially in this “crucial fight” for which he assured people of the State in overcoming this “invisible” health challenge sooner or later for which he sought help from the people to help them in all endeavors.

The medical minister further urged the authority and the medical staff to make use of the equipment as one’s own property, maintaining and keeping it clean and hygienic.
