World’s largest COVID-19 facility with 10,000 beds to be setup in Delhi

With increasing number of Coronavirus positive cases in Delhi, the government is now converting the Radha Soami Spiritual Centre into world’s largest temporary Coronavirus healthcare facility comprising 10,000 beds.

One of the most interesting features of this facility would be eco-friendly cardboard beds, which need no sanitisation and are widely recyclable. These beds need not be sanitised as the virus does not remain stable on cardboard for more than 24 hours. These beds are really light, easy to assemble and dismantle. Supplying these beds for the facility is a matter of pride for us, said Vikram Dhavan, director of Dhavan Box Sheet Containers Pvt Ltd. The Chhatarpur centre, which was earlier being used to shelter migrant workers, will now accommodate COVID-19 patients in an area of 12,50,000 square feet, with preinstalled fans and CCTV cameras.

Setting up the facility as per COVID-19 and healthcare guidelines, the centre will function as 20 mini hospitals with 500 beds each, said South Delhi district magistrate BM Mishra.

Having at least 400 doctors on board, this Chhatarpur facility will consolidate on-site ambulances and its own pathology laboratory for testing. ?Each 500-bed hospital will have five to ten enclosures of 50-100 beds; 10% of the beds will have oxygen supply. However, it will not have ventilators. We have made arrangements for referral with super specialty hospitals for critical patients, added Mishra.

To ensure the facility is best managed, e-management systems used in hospitals will be installed in the centre and to ascertain manpower, Delhi government has assigned military, paramilitary and philanthropists to lend their helping hands for the quick setup. Working on the forefront, the facility is scheduled to be completed by June 30.

In recent announcement made by Home Minister Amit Shah, 500 railway coaches will be converted and 8,000 beds will be made available for treatment. He also announced steps for making 60% Coronavirus beds in private hospitals available at lower rates and increasing testing by three times in six days. The capital has 44,688 positive cases with 1,837 deaths until June 17.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
