SATTARI – The rural villagers of Sattari have alleged that four Rural Medical Dispensary and around 17 sub health centres in Sattari Taluka are lying unused even as the Covid-19 pandemic has ravaged the State health infrastructure.
The villagers demanded that this infrastructure be used for atleast vaccination purpose.
They say in Sattari presently the Covid vaccination is going on in Valpoi Community Health Centre and the Valpoi Kadamba Bus stand.
However, health employees say, the more pressure is on the Valpoi Community Health Centre,
Villagers also charge that despite having the four Rural Medical Dispensary in Rural Village Panchayat of Sattari Taluka, the villagers have to travel far away from their village to the Valpoi Community Health Centre for vaccination and for Covid test wherein they have to wait in queue for hours together.
One of such Rural Medical Dispensary from Guleli Village panchayat, was built in 1991 and inaugurated by then Deputy Chief Minister and Health Ministry Dr. Wilfred D’ Souza which is lying unused in this pandemic time.
The Locals from Rural villages of Sattari have demand to the Chief Minister, Pramod Sawant that to start the Covid 19 vaccination and Covid test in all four Rural Medical Dispensary and sub health centres of Sattari Taluka.
