“Each bed is equipped with oxygen concentrators and adequate arrangements have been made for doctors, nurses, medicines and other necessary items. The patients will also be provided free meals thrice a day,” Verma said.
South Delhi MP Ramesh Bidhuri, in association with the Shiv Asra Trust (SAT), has started three Covid centres where 125 beds are available in Tughlaqabad Village, Sangam Vihar and Mahipalpur Village.
