Vedanta Sesa Goa Iron Ore supports state government to boost medical & treatment amenities to curb the COVID rage.

As Goa fights the second swell of the coronavirus infection from the front lines, Vedanta Sesa Goa Iron Ore has extended its support to strengthen the state's medical infra to shoulder the sudden case spike. The mining company has committed to extend a 100-bed facility at the Goa Medical College at Bambolim to enhance healthcare amenities in the coastal state, against the pandemic threat.

Vedanta to supply 3 tonnes of free LMO each day

In a bid to tackle the pandemic in Goa, Vedanta has stepped up to offer its help to ramp up the state's medical foundation and treatment facilities. Reportedly, it will provide 100 beds, 80 oxygenated and 20 for critical care and 5 ventilators along with related equipment to ensure infra boost. Apart from this, other instruments and facilities to run a full-fledged hospital will also be provided. The clinical framework of this additional facility is expected to complete in the next 15-20 days.

Besides this support, Vedanta Sesa has also pledged to provide oxygen support to Goa Government and district administration. Around 3 tonnes of free LMO will be supplied from the Amona Plant per day, read reports. As yet, this manufacturing unit has already delivered over 60 tonnes of medical-grade oxygen for the benefit of COVID patients. The Vedanta aid also expands to cover the provision of 200 oxygen concentrators out of which, 100 have already been supplied.

Sauvick Mazumdar, CEO, Iron & Steel, Vedanta Limited said, "At Vedanta, "Care" for our community, and the development of our nation is our DNA that we strive by it. We believe in giving back to the communities and support, during this unprecedented situation due to COVID-19 pandemic. We are constantly supporting Goa Govt in combating COVID through various means, and through our collective efforts, we will tide over this COVID pandemic"

Vedanta's aid during the first wave of infection

They had also arranged for masks, sanitisers, awareness campaign and even sanitisation drives at public places to maximise civic hygiene.

Maharashtra Unlock: BMC issues new relaxations for Mumbai amid lockdown

Mumbai suburban 'local' trains will not resume operations for the general public.

The Maharashtra government on Monday decided to continue with Level-3 COVID curbs in 14 out of the 36 districts here, including state capital Mumbai. While partial relaxations are awarded to the other 22 cities, the high caseload and emergence of fresh infections in the listed regions have discouraged the administration from withdrawing the restrictions in these regions.

Parallelly, the state has authorised the local civic body to decide the level of curbs in 3 of these 14 districts, namely Mumbai, Mumbai suburban and Thane. As such, the BMC has permitted all shops (except malls) to open here till 10 PM. The local trains will, however, remain shut for all passengers.
