With increase in the number of Covid cases in Belagavi city and the resultant shortage of beds in dedicated Covid hospitals, a First Line Covid Treatment center (Covid Care Center- CCC) has been established at Parshwanath Doddanavar Bharatesh College of Nursing, P.B. Road, Opp. Suvarn Vidhan Sabha, Halaga.
The center begins from 1st September 2020
Vinod Doddanavar, Secretary, BET, said that this center, established jointly with Shree Ortho and Trauma Center, Bharatesh Education Trust, Jain International Trade Organziation (JITO) and Bharatiya Jain Sanghatana (BJS) Belagavi chapter, with the intention to providing basic healthcare and support to the needy patients who are covid positive, covid positive suspects or contacts (mild cases) of covid positive patients. This facility does not cater to moderately symptomatic or those who need advanced medical treatment for Covid-19.
The CCC shall follow all protocols established by the ICMR and the District Health Officer. A team of expert doctors, nurses and support staff is available round the clock.
