The Ministry of Home Affairs has said that multi-disciplinary teams have been constituted to visit all private hospitals in Delhi to check the status of compliance of various directions issued by Union Health Ministry for testing and treating COVID patients and that by Delhi government to contain the spread of COVID-19.
The Ministry said the teams will start their visit immediately and they will submit their reports within two days along with specific details. The teams have been given a list of tasks and have to report to MHA if the private hospitals have wards and ICU beds in accordance with orders issued by the Delhi government and if it has been displayed on the corona dashboard of Delhi government on a real-time basis. The teams will also be checking any violations.
Delhi High Court last week vacated a stay imposed by a single-judge bench on Delhi government’s order on the reservation of 80 per cent ICU beds in 33 private hospitals for COVID-19 patients.
