Stressing on the positive change in the health sector under the present government, the chief minister said, ” The JNIMS has a hospital-like environment today, a hygienic environment unlike in the past. Manipur has improved tremendously in the health sector as is evident by the successful kidney transplant at JNIMS recently. There is a need to improve infrastructure for neurosurgery in the state.”

The chief minister also talked about the Health for All scheme and said that under the scheme not only free door-to-door health checkups, but even medicines are provided for certain diseases. The primary focus of the scheme is early detection of diseases, he added.

Medical teams are covering all areas, including even inaccessible areas, under the scheme, he said.

Singh said, “We still cannot take COVID-19 lightly since there are still many who are yet to get vaccinated.”
