Delhi opens one of the world’s largest hospitals to fight coronavirus
According to the Delhi government, the Sardar Patel COVID Care Centre has become partly operational on Sunday, with 2,000 of its 10,000 beds available. India has opened one of the largest hospitals in the world to help fight coronavirus. The remaining 8,000 beds at the facility will be in use soon.
India’s Home Minister Amit Shah and Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal visited the care center ahead of its launch. Kejriwal described the center as being “among the largest hospitals in the world”, in a message posted on Twitter. Amit Shah tweeted that the 10,000-bed facility “would provide huge relief to the people of Delhi.”
The administration and operations of the facility will be run by the Indo-Tiberan Border Police (ITBP).
The opening of the hospital coincided with the release of India health ministry data which showed the largest rise in the daily number of new Covid-19 cases.
Delhi became the country’s worst-hit city, surpassing Mumbai’s coronavirus tally. Only the west India state of Maharashtra has had more infections than the capital.
