The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) held a meeting with top government officials and has decided to re-open the COVID-19 centre situated in the Cantt area in the view of Covid case surge.
A senior government official said, “It has been that the 500 bedded hospitals will be re-opened in Delhi and DRDO will run the centre. The decision has been taken in wake of a massive spike in the number of cases.”
“The centre will be opened immediately, within this week and soon it will start taking patients as per previous mandate,” an official said.
“CAPF doctors and paramedics along with Defence doctors and staff will be called in to start this facility. The decision has been taken in a meeting chaired by Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla,” sources said.
Official communication will be released soon to intimate all stakeholders, sources claimed.
It is yet to be decided if the world’s largest COVID-19 centre in Chhatarpur will restart or not, sources said.
