Delhi CM arvind kejriwal
After inspecting a COVID care center at the Ramlila ground near GTB hospital, CM Arvind Kejriwal and health minister Satyender Jain said 500 beds would be ready for use by May 11. In the main Ramlila ground near LNJP, 500 beds will be set up soon. Kejriwal says these 1000 beds will reduce the scarcity of ICU beds in Delhi. The number of oxygen, beds is also being increased. The Delhi government is working on developing the infrastructure of COVID management. Preparations are taken for the third wave. The current infrastructure of Delhi can manage up to 30,000 COVID cases per day.
“500 ICU beds have been constructed in 2 weeks at the Ramlila Maidan opp. GTB hospital. Patients will be admitted from tomorrow. My heartfelt gratitude to all the engineers who made it happen in record time.” The CM tweeted.
CM Arvind Kejriwal said, “We’re at the Ramlila Ground, in front of the GTB Hospital, where we’ve set up a 500-bed ICU Centre within 10 days. We know how dangerous the second wave has been -- which has seen several people being affected, it has seen several deaths, the infection spread on a massive level. There has been a great need for ICU beds. Since Delhi saw a shortage of ICU beds, 500 such beds have been set up here. Only monitors are left to be set up, which too will be made available by tonight. Starting tomorrow, these 500 ICU beds, attached to the GTB Hospital will become functional.”
He further added, “A similar 500-bed ICU center will be set up at the Ramlila Maidan in front of LNJP Hospital within 2-3 days. It is hoped that these 1,000 operational ICU beds will meet the needs of Delhi. We are also increasing the number of oxygen beds. By this evening, we are expected to receive 1,000 oxygen cylinders, and in the next 3-4 days we expect additional oxygen cylinders to arrive. We are creating new oxygen, beds across the city, and hope that Delhi will no longer see any shortage of beds.”
