The Union Health Ministry intends to convert the COVID “war room” into a “health emergency operation centre.” According to reports, the opening of this rebuilt centre will take place shortly.
The COVID-19 war room was established on the first floor of the Union Health Ministry’s Nirman Bhawan, which was the nerve centre of the country’s pandemic situation. The war room will now be renamed the Health Emergency Operation Centre, and it will be inaugurated by Union Health Minister Dr Mansukh Mandaviya.
The Health Emergency Operation Centre will function around the clock, similar to a COVID war room. This centre has been equipped for all forms of national health emergencies. Previously, the COVID war room was exclusively totally focused on keeping an eye on the COVID-19 situation in India.
