Due to the rising COVID 19 cases in the capital, a Commonwealth Games stadium has been modified into the coronavirus care center with a 600-bed capacity. Delhi has registered more than 87000  coronavirus patients, which is the third-highest in the country, after Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. 

CM Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia visited the center on Wednesday. This center will possess 600 beds out of which 200 have been completely prepared already. The center will be active in a few days. We have also made arrangements here for the healthcare workers who may need accommodation, the Chief Minister asserted.

A team of 80doctors and 150 nurses will be looking after the patients in the center.

Those patients who expect intensive care will not be brought here and will be treated only in the hospitals. However, in case any patient at the center develops serious symptoms, oxygen facilities and ambulances have been arranged for such circumstances.

There are distinct male and female wards and both will have 300 beds each.

‘Doctors For You’, an NGO comprising doctors from across the nation, will regulate the center in collaboration with the Delhi government.

Dr. Rajat Jain, President of ‘Doctors for You’ told the media that each bed will have a bell connected to it. The patient can ring it in case of any need and medical teams will instantly cater to the needs.

Security cameras have been established. For patients who face low oxygen levels, oxygen concentrators and oxygen cylinders will be arranged, he told.

In case patients create severe symptoms ambulances have been arranged and patients will be taken to Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital and Lok Nayak Hospital.

Delhi government is also planning to turn 40 hotels and 80 banquet halls into COVID Care Centres for the addition of around 15,000 COVID beds.
