NGO Save the Children’s recent campaign with actor Huma Qureshi aims to start a Covid facility with a ward for kids in Delhi
The facility has been equipped to cater to COVID-19 positive individuals, who are either asymptomatic, or exhibiting mild symptoms or seeking isolation services.
The Delhi government on Tuesday ordered all Covid-19 facilities to provide food to all staff, including contractual ones, and also give them ‘transportation charge’ of Rs 200 per day.
The panchayat now has over 250 Covid patients. Many of them have no option but to stay with other family members at home.
The Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday during a video conference also announced that the facility is being worked upon to open up for facilitating Covid-19 patients.
Kejriwal said the number of beds in government and private hospitals must be at par with that in November last year, when the COVID-19 pandemic was at its peak.
