The Competent Foundation and Bharat Vikas Parishad, an NGO, established a 50-bed Mini-Covid Care Centre, which became operational at Indira Holiday Home in Sector 24 here today.

The centre was inaugurated by UT Adviser Manoj Parida and National BJP Vice-President Saudan Singh in the presence of city chief Sanjay Tandon and his wife Priya Tandon, Parishad’s National General Secretary and nominated Councilor Ajay Dutta and Parishad’s Trustee Anoop Gupta.

Parida said the efforts would be effective in taking the city out of crisis. He called for the beds to be given to critical patients in need of oxygen and medical care. He instructed his team to give referrals to the centre in a planned manner to the patients arriving at the Sector 16 hospital.

Tandon said the technology had been used in the centre in a convincing manner.

He said the centre’s operations are fully computerised that ensure daily reports of patients’ families via email and WhatsApp. In addition to well-qualified doctors, the centre has six nurses and three cleaners deployed round the clock. The Infosys team will provide three-time meals at the centre.

A mini-Covid care centre with 50-bed capacity has also been made operational at Working Women Hostel, Bal Bhawan, Sector 23-B, informed nodal officer Yashpal Garg.

He said the Covid centres at Indira Holiday Home and Working Women Hostel had been attached with Government Multi-Specialty Hospital, Sector 16, for the regulation of admission of patients, list of medicines required to be kept at the centre, periodic visit by doctors for guidance and arrangements of ambulance to shift the patients to appropriate hospital.
