Shivajinagar, September 5, 2020: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has resolved to provide manpower to take care of the Jumbo COVID Hospital on the COEP ground in Shivajinagar. Sufficient manpower has been deployed there.

Additional Municipal Commissioner and Executive Head of the hospital, Rubal Agarwal informed that “The manpower consisting of 50 doctors and 120 paramedics will serve at the Jumbo COVID Hospital.”

Rumours were circulating that doctors and nurses at the Jumbo facility have resigned. There is no truth in this, clarified Agarwal.

Today senior authorities took a review of the situation at the Jumbo COVID Hospital. Two cardiac ambulances have been made available there. All the treatments will be made free of charge at the Jumbo Hospital. Remdesivir injections will also be provided for free.

Agarwal said, “The policy is to give a prescription for Remdesivir to patient’s relatives, but for presently admitted patients we have decided to provide Remdesevir to control current situations. If anyone asks the relatives of the Corona patients to purchase injections from outside, action will be taken against the staff. Patients families may contact the disaster management cell of PMC for any complaints.”
