The Delhi government on Sunday has designated Bara Hindu Rao Hospital, located in North Delhi and run by the North Delhi Municipal Corporation, as a Covid-19 facility.

The hospital has been instructed to make all hospital beds available to admit COVID-19 patients. It is said that the NCR would have over five lakh Covid-19 cases by the end of July, requiring the need for 80,000 additional beds.


The Supreme Court has recently described the COVID-19 situation in Delhi, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and West Bengal as 'deplorable' and has sought response from the five states, pointing out reports of improper handling of COVID-19 patients and disposal of their bodies.

The Indian Railways has announced that it has deployed 54 isolation coaches at Delhi’s Shakurbasti railway station maintenance depot to give a boost to the number of COVID-19 beds in NCR.
