Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia visited Vijay Williams Covid Care Centre at the Mount Carmel School which has been transformed into a Covid-19 centre with essential medical facilities such as oxygen beds, oxygen concentrators and medicines.
Sisodia said, “We may be able to link this Covid Care Centre with one of our big hospitals in the city. This Covid Centre, which has been started under the aegis of the Mount Carmel School Society, is a mark of humanity and generosity. The availability of beds and other facilities gives us confidence that we have the resources to fight this deadly crisis.”
“We see that nations are experiencing one of the worst pandemics ever. The period from April 22 to May 5, was the most challenging one for Delhi. We received the highest number of cases and the infection rate was staggering. We responded immediately by increasing hospital beds in the city, however, the scarcity of oxygen has been one of the most challenging problems we have faced,” he said. “The decreasing positivity rate shows that we are slowly coming out of the crisis and all the credit goes to the doctors and the corona warriors for ensuring such a decline,” he added.
