Kolkata, Dec 29 (UNI) Nobel Laureate Professor Mohammud Yunus today said modern medical and hospital facilities were good in the city.
After visiting Bhagirathi Neotia Women's and Child Care Nursing Home at Park Circus in the central part of the city, Mr Yunus said while modern hospital facilities were lacking in this subcontinent, he was pleased to see that the city had an array of good health and medical facilites.
The nobel laureate had also visited a paediatric department of the hospital and distributed sketch books to 10 children admitted here.
