Corona Update: Delhi government hospitals rehearse preparations to deal with the Kovid-19 epidemic


Delhi government-run hospitals on Sunday conducted rehearsals to assess their preparedness to deal with the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the city. A mock drill was conducted for nearly two hours on Sunday at the Lok Nayak Jayaprakash (LNJP) Hospital, which is at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 in the national capital.

Dr. Suresh Kumar, Medical Director, LNJP, said, “During the rehearsal, we measured the minimum time taken to treat a patient brought to the hospital and the time taken to transfer him to the room.”

“We need to shift patients to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) when they come in critical condition. We have the red corridor. We checked whether all oxygen points and ventilators were working or not. We have 450 beds for corona virus patients. ”The senior doctor said that last month there was no patient on the bed reserved for Kovid-19 in LNJP Hospital, but the situation is changing in the last few days.

He told, “A 54-year-old patient is on ventilator. He is a diabetic patient while the other is a 36-year-old patient who is breathing with the help of oxygen and has pneumonia. Rehearsals were also held at other hospitals including Satyawadi Raja Harishchandra Hospital (SRHCH) in Delhi.

“The rehearsal continued for about an hour during which all aspects of COVID-19 preparedness were tested,” a senior SRHCH doctor told PTI. Rehearsal was done to test the Kovid-19 preparations. This information was given by Dr. SK Arora, Medical Director of the hospital.
