With the growing number of COVID patients in the city especially since July 1 where currently we have around 300 active cases, the pressure is building upon the health dept to get more beds.
A special 80-bed facility has been made for asymptomatic patients at Halbhavi Morarji Desai School, but seeing the trend more beds would be required and hence the administration has decided to take charge of 3 lodges in the city which would be converted into COVID care centers and the govt would pay the fare.
Hotel Rohan Residency, Hotel Sanman and Hotel Rex Annexe will be taken over by the administration, and COVID care centers would be established as per the report of the Sakal.
The primary contacts of the new COVID positives will be kept here in these centers.
At all the 3 places will have 24×7 medical staff and other facilities.
