GALKOT, May 27: Five out of 10 local levels in Baglung district have brought into operation the dedicated coronavirus treatment hospitals with doctors and oxygen facilities. However, all local levels of the district have set up isolation centres equipped with oxygen to stem the spread of coronavirus infection.
