Chandigarh, May 7, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday directed Health Minister Balbir Sidhu and Medical Education Minister OP Soni to explore the possibility of providing chemotherapy to cancer patients in Bathinda Civil Hospital while the Cancer Hospital in the district continues to be utilized as L3 facility for Covid patients.

The directive came during a Covid review meeting after the Health Minister raised concerns over the problems caused to cancer patients as a result of the Cancer Hospital being taken over as a Covid facility by the administration.

While endorsing the decision taken by the Chief Secretary to utilize the Cancer Hospital as Covid facility in the absence of any other L3 facility in Bathinda, the Chief Minister said some alternative arrangement should be made for the cancer patients, who require regular pain management.

Earlier, Chief Secretary Vini Mahajan said that 25 beds at cancer hospital had been taken over for COVID 19, as the Bathinda AIIMS was not available for L3 treatment and there was no other such facility available to cater to Southern Punjab with critical patients having to travel to Ludhiana or Patiala for treatment. There are 40 cancer patients, who visit the cancer hospital and are administered treatment in a completely separate area, with a separate entry and exit, posing no risk to them on account of COVID.

CM directed that steps should be taken to provide this treatment to Cancer patients at the Civil Hospital to make more beds available for Level 3 Covid patients.

Five yoga suggestions to help you breathe easy

New Delhi, June 17, 2021 (Yes Punjab) Yoga is often mistaken as an 'exercise' that only caters to the body. But the most important thing we forget, is that the central dogma of yoga is breath. Life is breath. "We breathe in oxygen and release carbon dioxide, it's simple biology," is what some said. But breathing is a very powerful...
