Lucknow Madrasa charts a dynamic journey from a learning centre to a COVID care clinic!

All set to be inaugurated tomorrow, the clinic will help in assuring improved availability and accessibility of healthcare services.

With an aim to amplify the available medical resources for combating the pandemic, a madrasa in Lucknow has been converted into a COVID care clinic, which will be functional from Wednesday onwards. The altruistic facility will be launched at Madrasa Abu Talib, located in the highly populated Kashmiri Mohalla area, for the benefit of needy and deprived individuals. All set to be inaugurated by Maulana Saif Abbas, the clinic will help in assuring improved availability and accessibility of healthcare services.

Ample healthcare staff with medical resources available at the centre

It has been stated that sufficient medical professionals including doctors, nurses and paramedical staff will be positioned at the facility. Additionally, the clinic will have all necessary resources like Covid diagnostic kits, oximeters and other devices which aid in an early diagnosis of the COVID infection. Under the second phase of the project, isolation beds will also be set up at the charitable clinic and the centre will operate as a primary facility for quarantining COVID patients.

According to Maulana Saif Abbas, "The idea came from the experience during the second wave of coronavirus pandemic that hit the city in April-May. People, especially those from the minority community, are afraid of going to hospitals and ignore symptoms initially. By the time they are taken to the hospital, the disease reaches severe stage."

Academic activities to continue at Madrasa

As per the officials, the academic activities will run in parallel to the operations of the clinic. While the clinic will be established at the ground floor, the first floor will be used for educational purposes.

During the second wave of the pandemic, the city was faced with multiple problems like the dwindling count of beds and other resources. This prompted the authorities to convert the Madrasa into the COVID clinic so that the patients can be benefitted. It has been stated that individuals experiencing symptoms can visit the centre and get themselves checked.

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.
