According to the Delhi Corona app, there are 1328 ventilator beds for Corona patients. Of these, 1152 beds have been filled. It is a matter of concern that beds are completely filled in 40 hospitals in Delhi. These hospitals range from government hospitals such as Lady Hardinge, Deendayal Upadhyay, LNJP to large private hospitals like Apollo, Max, Sargangaram. In addition to ventilator beds, 85 percent of ICU beds have also been filled. Of the total 2136 ICU beds in hospitals, only 326 are vacant. LNJP, the largest Kabir Hospital in Delhi, has also filled most of the ICU beds and only ICU beds are available for the treatment of children.
Nearly two and a half thousand patients admitted to hospitals in two weeks
There are 2475 patients admitted in hospitals of the capital in two weeks. During this period, 90 thousand cases of infection have been reported. From this perspective, only three percent of the patients need to be admitted to hospitals.
A Health Department official said that 50% of the normal beds in Kovid hospitals are still empty. Only ICUs and ventilator beds are filling. The big reason for this is that many people are turning to hospitals when they are in critical condition. A large number of these patients are also from outside Delhi. Outside patients are coming and getting admitted in many major private hospitals. Governments are also increasing the number of ICU beds. More than a thousand beds have been increased in two weeks.
