Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir LG Manoj Sinha today inaugurated a 500-bedded DRDO COVID Hospital with an ICU facility, at Khonmoh in Srinagar.
DRDO has played a key role in India’s fight against #COVID19. After completing a 500-bedded hospital in Jammu, a 500-bedded hospital in Srinagar, completed in just 17 days, is being commissioned today, LG said.
We devised a strategy to implement a host of interventions viz. augmentation of ICU & Oxygen supported beds, deployment of former medical and newly qualified staff, decentralization of health system through Panchayat Covid Care Centres & accelerated vaccination drive, LG said.
J&K now has a greater capacity to treat all Covid-19 & other patients, all because of the dynamic impact assessment of various interventions and taking timely decisions to increase hospital capacity in response to the pandemic, LG said.
