New Delhi: Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has launched the Services e-Health Assistance and Tele-Consultation (Health) OPD portal through video conferencing. Meanwhile, Rajnath Singh said that the corona wave is unprecedented and more deadly than ever, but the Defence Ministry has also rendered its services in the second wave.
He said, DRDO has set up Covid Hospitals and Oxygen Production Plants in Delhi, Lucknow, Varanasi and many other parts of the country. This has greatly helped in the corona war. The Defence Minister said that 'With the help of Dr. Reddy's Lab, Hyderabad, DRDO has produced the required medicine 2-DG. It is yielding positive results. I am getting information from many statistics that they want a 2-DG. I am very happy to say that today 10,000 pouches are coming into the market'.
Cyclone Yaas has also added to the woes of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). The Integrated Testing Site (ITR) has taken several precautionary measures to protect its establishments located at Chandipur and Abdul Kalam Island in Odisha. A scientist at the Regional Meteorological Centre in Bhubaneswar said that the storm is likely to hit the coast of Dhamra and Chandbali in Bhadrak district.
