We all know that we are all going through a tough time fighting the threat posed by COVID-19 (Corona Virus). Following the lockdown imposed by the Central Government, movement of Private vehicles, non-essential commodity vehicles and movement across check-post by foot have been restricted. We understand that the residents of Bengal Rangpo have started to face problems, particularly during medical emergencies. As such, in order to mitigate this problem of our neighbouring town, we have set-up 24X7 medical camp headed by Doctors at the check-post gate itself. All patients are being extended medical treatment and prescribed medicines are being made available by our team on payment (subject to availability of medicines at
Rangpo). However, in case of a referral to higher institutes, patients will have to be taken to Hospitals within West Bengal.
