Mizoram chief minister Zoramthanga on Wednesday said one of the two Mizoram Houses in Delhi would be used as a Covid19 care centre for the Covid19 infected patients from the state.

There are two Mizoram Houses in Delhi located at Vasant Vihar and Chanakyapuri.

Zoramthanga said he has great concern for the people of the state living in the national capital, who have been infected by the deadly virus.

“A Mizoram House at Vasant Vihar will be used as Covid19 Care Centre for Covid19 infected positive patients from the state to take rest. We will take measure to make it function as an Intensive Care Unit (ICU),” Zoramthanga wrote in his official Instagram handle.

He urged both officials and leaders, who are engaged in Delhi for the welfare of Mizo people to make arrangement in this regard.

The Mizoram chief minister further urged the doctors and nurses from the state living in the national capital to make use of their skills and launch the service as per their convenience.

“We will try our best for our people. It is time for us to fight the pandemic together,” Zoramthanga said.
