Odisha will become the country’s first state to have a large-scale hospital to exclusively treat COVID-19 patients.

The CSR funding to build the hospital will be from Mahanadi Coalfields Limited and Odisha Mining Corporation, according to a report.

Odisha government has allowed garages and dhabas along highways to remain open. This move was meant for truckers who deliver essential goods. By doing this, even amid the lockdown, the supply chain would not be affected.
