400-bed Covid care centre at Gurudwara Rakab Ganj to begin operations today
The 400-bed Covid care and centre at Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Sahib will be operational from Monday, said Delhi health minister Satyendar Jain, who was on a visit to review the amenities.
Thanking the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC), the health minister said the facility is equipped with essential oxygen support and medicines.
The facility with 400 oxygen beds will be functional from Monday 2pm, Manjinder Singh Sirsa, president of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee said.
The most significant part of the facility is that it has been attached to the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) Hospital, the Covid-19 dedicated hospital. "The Covid care centre is being managed by 50 doctors from the Delhi government-run Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital. They will be supported by a team of 150 nurses and ward boys," a PTI report quoted Singh as saying.
