Now, patients need not run here and there in search of hospital beds in the city as the UT Administration has decided to upload the daily data on the availability of beds on its website.

The decision was taken following the directions of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. “As directed by the High Court, data on availability of hospital beds will be uploaded daily on the UT Administration website,” said UT Adviser Manoj Parida.

During the hearing on a plea on Covid-19 management yesterday, senior advocate Anupam Gupta, while pointing at an order dated April 29, had said there was nothing to show on implementation of the directions passed by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs in letter and spirit by the Chandigarh Administration. As per the order of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs, among other things, a web portal be created by every state/UT to ensure availability of ready information on availability of oxygen, drugs, vaccine, vacant beds in government/private hospitals, and vaccination centers.

Keeping in view the increasing number of Covid cases in the city, the UT Administration has given a clarion call for setting up mini Covid care centres voluntarily by various social organisations and associations.

On offering of funds for Covid management, Parida requested the donors to instead donate items like oxygen cylinders, ventilators, etc., which can be used in Covid care centres.
