There is no tension or worry on the face of the people admitted here. Most people are resting on beds. Some are taking books from the library. Some are sitting on chairs. There is a discipline in every work happening here, which is not only in the staff but also in the patients.
Here most attention is being given to the mental health of the infected. Inspectors Suman Yadav and Brajesh Kumar are Education and Stress Counselors. His team's job is to reduce the stress of patients. She says, 'Yoga is given to patients in the morning, meditation is done in the evening. Every patient is counseled. We make the patients feel that we are with them.

We strengthen them mentally. We listen to their smallest talk. When the entire staff stands with them, they feel that we are not alone.
Inspector Brajesh says, “It's a time of epidemics. There are many challenges too. But our team handles them. We do team work and follow the instructions of the officers.” Dr. Rita Moga is a medical specialist. She takes care of patients who are already suffering from any other disease. She says, “There are too many patients here. Sometimes it is difficult to talk to them. There are none with patients. We also have to take care of their every need.

There are about one lakh new cases of corona infection presently in India and this number is the highest in the world. The Union Home Ministry started the Sardar Patel Covid Care Center in the first week of July. Government of Delhi, Municipal Corporation of Delhi, Radha Swami Satsang Vyas and many other NGOs are supporting it. Its command is in the hands of ITBP.
So far, about five thousand infected have been admitted here. Patients with no symptoms or mild symptoms are admitted here. So far not a single patient has died here. Dr. Prashant Mishra explains, “There are 1800 normal beds while 200 beds have oxygen support.” ICU has also been prepared for emergency.
This temporary hospital was constructed in a very short time and was also very challenging. Dr. Mishra explains, 'Our doctors had been working till now in a hospital or a place where there was proper infrastructure. But here we have built this temporary hospital at the time of epidemic under the direction of the Ministry of Home Affairs. It was very challenging to do this work in a limited time. He explains, “On June 25, we had our first meeting to build this center and on July 05, we had admitted the first patient.
Dr. Mishra explains, 'ITBP Director General SS Deshwal set up a team for this work. This is the instruction for us that anyone who goes from here should feel good. We are all engaged in this task.
The corona center has brought elderly people ranging from 17 days old to 78 years old. Dr. Mishra says, 'Many infected people come who already have other diseases. Many do not even know that they are suffering from diseases like diabetes or hypertension.
No medical staff person has been infected in this corona center yet. Zero percent infection. Dr. Mishra says, 'We have planned to dispose of bio medical waste. We have created many protocols and SOPs that are being followed at every level. So far, the reason for our success is our discipline. Here everyone is doing their work by staying in discipline.
Here three times a day decoction, tea, hot water and food are provided free of cost.
The bio medical waste collection of this Kovid center is done by the team of Municipal Corporation of South Delhi. He says, 'Our job is to break the chain of viruses. We cannot do this work without the cooperation of the people. The good thing is that we are getting everyone's support.
ITBP is currently battling the virus from China on the outskirts and from China on the outskirts. Dr. Mishra says, 'The country has relied on us. The operation of this world's largest Kovid center is a different experience. Its lessons will come forward.
Asked whether the capacity of this center can be increased when needed, Mishra says, “We are fully prepared to implement whatever order we get. Now we have the experience.” Kovid visited the center twice and tried to look at things closely. Each time the same discipline appeared. Everything is going on under the prescribed protocol. And perhaps this discipline is the secret of the success of this corona center.
“I stayed in a private hospital for two days as well,” says a patient ruminating from the Kovid center. I was not taken care of there. The fat bill was definitely handed over. The facility here is world class and nothing is spent.
