How to use centre in a sentence?

  1. Krishnakant Singh:

    I get calls for beds every day. But where are the beds? Our in-charge of a primary healthcare centre died last night in a private nursing home as we couldn’t find him a bed in a proper hospital, just oxygen won’t help, we need ICUs (intensive care units) and ventilators. Just breathing has become difficult here.

  2. Thomas Chabot:

    Whenever things don’t go our way, it’s hard obviously to stay positive at times, but just the fact that we showed up here at the Bell Centre against the best team in our division and we stepped up our game to get the win, obviously it wasn’t pretty at all times, but when you’re going through nine losses in a row, you’re getting a little nervous by the end. But I’m so happy we got it done.

  3. Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian:

    There was a strike yesterday on an oil distribution centre and last night we have hit another oil distribution centre and a gas separation factory.

  4. Prafull Sakulani:

    If the company's management threatens to take your job if you don't take jab , then ask those blasstards Ceo and Directors why they don't wear masks and then pull them out of their cabins and drag them to covid centre lab and get them vexed there itself. Either they will run away for their life or for years give away in medical expenses money earned through corruption and bribe

  5. Richard Reid:

    Any one country trying to introduce gold plating of regulation in these areas can find the business moves somewhere else, in this case there would have to be something done at an EU level. You can always come up with moral suasion and EU guidelines, but sometimes just turning the spotlight on one centre can bring pressure on that particular regime.
