Kejriwal, Shah inspect 10,000 bed Sardar Patel Covid Care Centre at Chhatarpur
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Union Home Minister Amit Shah jointly inspected the preparedness of the 10,000 bed Sardar Patel Covid Care Centre situated at the Radha Soami Satsang Beas campus at Chhatarpur.
Kejriwal said in a tweet after the visit: “In this hour of difficulty, I sought help to save Delhi and everyone has come forward to contribute enthusiastically. With the support of the Central government and Radha Soami Satsang Beas, such a large Covid centre has come up for Delhiites.”
The Centre which will be one of the world’s largest at its full capacity is being setup by the state government for treating mild and asymptomatic patients. The centre also has capacity to provide oxygen support therapy on a section of the beds in case of drop in any patients’ oxygen saturation.
Kejriwal had invited Shah to visit the Centre earlier this week and also requested the Centre to provide medical staff to run the centre. The Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) will carry out all medical operations at the centre.
Several other private and non-profit organisations have provided their support in the setting up of the Sardar Patel Covid Care Centre. The successful rollout of the Centre is a phenomenal example of inter-governmental and organisational cooperation in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
