New Delhi / Rourkela/IBNS: Ispat Nidan Kendra – the newly developed state-of-the-art Jumbo COVID Treatment Centre of SAIL, Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) was inaugurated by Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan through virtual mode on Wednesday.


This Centre has at present 100 oxygen-supported beds including 50 ventilator-attached beds. Work is in progress to increase the oxygenated bed strength to 500 including 100 ventilator-attached beds in near future.

Describing the inaugural function as a momentous occasion for not only Rourkela but also for the entire region, Pradhan said SAIL, RSP has once again rose to the occasion and proved its capability by taking up host of initiatives to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pradhan said, "... this massive facility will help in containing the second wave of the Covid pandemic in the region and will also strengthen healthcare response. The permanent facility will also be used for non-Covid treatment post the pandemic.

 Appreciating SAIL for its tireless efforts in supplementing government’s efforts in fighting this pandemic, the minister emphasized on the need of large scale vaccination for people.
