The administration will soon acquire 60 beds, including 57 having oxygen support and three having ventilator support, at MM Medical College and Hospital, Kumarhatti.

District Magistrate (DM), KC Chaman, said the beds would be acquired on May 4 from the private medical college and hospital. Earlier, 50 beds were acquired from the medical college, including 38 with oxygen support and 12 with ventilator support.

The Chief Medical Officer had requested the administration to enhance the bed strength from 50 to 110 where 95 beds would be fitted with oxygen support and 15 with ventilator of level 3 offering specialty tertiary care.

DM KC Chaman said a mechanism was being devised to monitor whether patients in home isolation received medicine kit within two hours and received a call from the doctor. This will help contain the pandemic and reduce hospitalization.

The need for beds was rapidly increasing. As many as 146 Covid patients are admitted to various hospitals while number of patients under home isolation was 2,478. As many as 110 deaths have been reported and there were 2,983 active cases. — TNS
