Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The district administration has made arrangements for more beds for mild symptomatic Covid patients.
It will help administration to segregate mild symptomatic patients from asymptomatic patients who are in home isolation. Secondly, the arrangement of beds (non-oxygen supported) is aimed to reduce burden of government-run Hamidia Hospital to focus on critical patients.
Hundred beds have been arranged for mild symptomatic patients in Ayurveda Hospital. Admission for this has started from Saturday. Similarly, more non-oxygen supported beds will be arranged in other hospitals.
According to health department, if mild symptomatic patients are properly treated and provided timely medication, the situation will be brought under control. Corona positive rate is over 20 per cent in state capital.
Meanwhile, SDMs have been instructed to explore scope for vaccination camp. Bhopal district collector Avinash Lawania has instructed SDMs to organise maximum vaccination camps to speed up inoculation. SDM (Kolar) Rajesh Gupta distributed 10 lakh masks to people at Aura Mall to curb corona spread.
