Delhi hotels step up the game, turn into COVID Care Centres

Given the rising number of Coronavirus positive patients in the national capital, a number of hotels have been converted into Covid care centres. , ashrams and wedding halls in Delhi are being converted into Covid Care Centres. The decision was taken after there were several news reports stating that the patients are not being admitted into the hospitals because of the scarcity of beds. So the Delhi government decided to rope in hotels and ashrams to cope with the current situation. As per news reports, nearly 25 hotels in Delhi are being turned into Covid Care Centres.

What is a Covid Care Centre?

Covid Care Centre is a facility dedicated for people who have tested positive for Coronavirus and need special care. These facilities are different from a quarantine facility, which only takes asymptomatic people required to be isolated for 14 days.

The Delhi government has selected a few hotels and has been sending out notices telling them that their hotel has been selected as Covid Care Centres and will be operated by hospital staff. The employees of the hotel will be there to provide back-end support. However, as per news reports, a few hotel staff will be trained by the medical staff to perform some basic functions.

Apart from hospitals, some ashrams and wedding halls in the city are also being converted into the isolation facility with more than 10000 beds.

As of now, 25 hotels in Delhi are chosen to be repurposed as Covid Care Centres. However, the decision has made some employees uncomfortable as they don’t see it safe and many of them are rejecting the new role.
