Faridabad, November 18

With a drastic increase in the number of positive cases, the district administration has announced to reserve 50 per cent of beds in all local hospitals for Covid patients. Earlier, it was 25 per cent.

The district recorded three deaths and 756 new cases on Tuesday, which is perhaps the highest in 24 hours.

No Chhath Puja this year

The district administration has denied the permission for Chhath Puja and gatherings at public places till further orders. “Officials have been asked to issue challans for flouting Covid guidelines,” DC Yashpal Yadav said.

DC Yashpal Yadav, who chaired a meeting of the district Covid crisis management committee, issued a notification on Wednesday and ordered the hospitals to reserve 50 per cent beds for serious Covid patients with immediate effect. He said the rest of the positive patients should be shifted to other Covid care centres and given oxygen facility immediately.

The Civil Surgeon has been asked to review the bed capacity for the ICU and ventilators and provide additional capacity on an urgent basis. — TNS
