New Delhi27 minutes ago
To fight the third wave of Corona, the Center has made a plan to immediately strengthen the health infrastructure. The Center plans to build 50 modular hospitals across the country in the next 3 months, with ICU beds and oxygen supply. The biggest problem was the supply of oxygen during the second wave. According to the Times of India report, these modular hospitals will be built close to the existing hospitals. Through this, the health infrastructure will be expanded.
The special thing is that such hospitals to be built at a cost of 3 crores can be built in less than 3 weeks. These will have ICU, oxygen support and other life support systems. The lifespan of these modular hospitals is at least 25 years. In times of disaster, these hospitals can be shifted in a week.
These will be the specialty of modular hospital
Focus on small towns and rural areas
According to the report, this project has been started by Principal Scientific Advisor K Vijay Raghavan. Right now it will be implemented only in government hospitals. These hospitals will meet the lack of health infrastructure, especially in small towns and rural areas.
Aditi Lele of the Principal Scientific Advisor’s office said that we are in constant touch with the states, where such hospitals are needed. Especially those states where the cases of Kovid are increasing rapidly. In this we have also approached other partners under Corporate Social Responsibility who can help us in this project.
Hospitals will be built in these cities
Under this scheme, these hospitals will be built in Bilaspur in Chhattisgarh, Pune in Maharashtra, Jalna, Mohali in Punjab. Apart from this, such a 20-bed hospital will be built in Raipur, Chhattisgarh. In Bengaluru, Karnataka, such beds of 20, 50 and 100 beds will be made in the first phase.
