Nagpur Mayor Sandip Joshi, NMC Commissioner Radhakrishnan B alogn with others during the meeting
As the COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to increase at a rapid speed, city mayor Sandip Joshi and Nagpur Municipal Corporation Commissioner Radhakrisnan B have appealed private hospitals in the city to increase the number of COVID-19 beds.
During a meeting chaired by Joshi on September 3, it was discussed that as the COVID-19 situation in Nagpur is deteriorating, drastic measures need to be taken to control the spread. Also, as the stress on government-run hospitals is increasing. While some private hospitals have been allowed to treat COVID-19 patients, hospitals, which apply for the same will be given the permission. The meeting was attended by Deputy Mayor Manisha Kothe, Standing Committee Chairman Vijay Zalke, NMC Commissioner Radhakrishnan B, Health Committee Chairperson Virendra Kukreja, Additional NMC Commissioners Jalaj Sharma, Ram Joshi and Sanjay Nipane.
Joshi said during the meeting that as per an ICMR report, the number of COVID-19 patients is expected to increase tremendously in September. Therefore, it is necessary to be cautious. He informed that the number of test centres to 50 in Nagpur have been increased to test at least 5,000 people a day.
NMC Commissioner Radhakrishnan B informed about the measures being taken by NMC with respect to the COVID-19 crisis. He said that NMC have made arrangements but there is shortage of manpower. Hospitals are ready but doctors are needed to treat the patients. An advertisement has been put out for this. He appealed private doctors to come forward.
Radhakrishnan B said that earlier there were only 20 COVID-19 hospitals in the city but now 51 hospitals have the permission to treat COVID-19 patients. He informed that the goal is to reduce the increasing number of deaths in the city. He said that the number of beds is expected to double or triple the number of beds now. He also said that if the IMA takes the initiative and sends a list of doctors who want to provide services; authorities will issue a work order within 24 hours.
