Although in the last few days, Covid cases have dropped in Gurugam, but the district officials are prepared to deal with the third Covid wave.

“This temporary hospital is being set up with a capacity of 100 beds, where the patients will be provided with all the possible healthcare facilities,” Garg said.

“All the preparations have been completed by the district administration and the company to set up this temporary hospital in Gurugam. While, establishing this Covid care centre, a technology called ‘HEPA Filter’ is being used which is effective in preventing the infection of the virus. There will be arrangements for 80 oxygen bad and 20 ICU beds in the initial phase,'” Aggarwal added.–IANS
