“Set up the center with immediate effect,” wrote Jamia Nagar resident Saddam Mujeeb.

Other residents too have been demanding for more Covid facilities in the locality.

Delhi reported 395 fatalities on a single day, according to health bulletin on Thursday. The city reported 24,235 Covid cases during the same period. The positivity rate is 32.82 per cent, recovered/discharged/migrated persons 25,615.

A few days ago in a video message also covered by the OT, MLA Khan had said he would be setting up 20 oxygen beds in Noor Nagar school, but the centre is still to be operational, said residents.

However, efforts made by activists and others have failed to have major impact as many Covid cases are taking place, said residents.
