He said the Covid hospitals should have all arrangements. He said that doctors and nursing staff should take regular rounds in the hospitals and emphasis be given on their training.
“Increase the number of beds in the Covid hospitals. Contact tracing should be done with a sense of urgency for which strengthening of the surveillance teams system is necessary,” he said.
