3,000 more beds added in COVID centres in Srinagar
Srinagar: Authorities in Srinagar have added 3,000 beds in wellness centres in the district for COVID-19 patients and will add 2,000 more soon as the number of coronavirus cases in Jammu and Kashmir, especially in the summer capital here, have spiked in the past three weeks.
The move comes amid apprehensions in certain quarters about the shortage of beds for COVID-19 infected patients in the city.
“While our institutional efforts are on, uninterrupted since March to contain Covid spread, for backup we’ve created 3,000 bed capacity, adding 2,000 more soon in #Srinagar. Made good use of lockdown time for these fully equipped facilities. Please rest assured on this front,” district development commissioner, Srinagar, Shahid Choudhary said on Twitter.
