Intensifying its frontline battle against Covid, the Capt Amarinder Singh government in Punjab today notified an ordinance to bring private clinical establishments under the ambit of its fight against the pandemic.

The notification brings all clinical establishments having capacity of more than 50 beds under the provisions of the ordinance. This is in line with the decision taken by the Council of Ministers at its meeting on April 10.

A government spokesperson said the ordinance would provide a mechanism for registration and regulation of clinical establishments in a professional manner to ensure compliance of minimum standards of facilities and services as well as transparency in the functioning of these establishments.

To implement the provisions of the ordinance, a Punjab State Council for Clinical Establishments would be set up under the chairmanship of Administrative Secretary, Health and Family Welfare, with its Director to function as Member Secretary.
