Hyderabad: In a videoconference with 10 Chief Ministers held by Narendra Modi, Telangana CM reminded the Prime Minister of the dire need to enhance the country’s medical facilities.
“The corona experience has taught us a lesson that there is an urgent need improve medical facilities nationwide. A visionary outlook and thinking are necessary for proper and adequate measures in the medical sector for a better future,” stressed KCR.
He suggested that the Centre and State should jointly implement this comprehensive strategy while also asking questions about the ideal doctor to people ratio, the amount of hospitals needed.
