Health department conducts a study


The health department conducted a study that included who really needs hospital admission, oxygen bed, ventilators. It was seen that few of the patients get themselves admitted out of sheer fear that they might not get the bed. Few fear that if they stay home quarantined, they might develop pneumonia and that might force them to run for an oxygen bed or Remdesivir injection.


This leads to a shortage of beds resulting in serious patients not getting the medical treatment on time.


Additional municipal commissioner Rubal Agarwal said, “We will conduct the audit of the patients in which the number of days, the health, line of treatment of the patient will be checked. We anticipate that we can vacant 100 to 125 beds daily from various hospitals.”
