Mysuru, April 20:- With the spiralling coronavirus cases, the district administration is doing its best to meet the emergency.
Talking to reporters here on Tuesday (April 20), Mysuru Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri said, “We have reserved 1,200 beds, especially for Covid patients. In private hospitals, we have 92 ICU beds and 62 ventilator facilities. In Government Hospitals, we have 28 ICU and 200 oxygen beds. And, at taluk-level, we have reserved 50 beds. The Trauma Centre has 200 beds reserved for coronavirus patients. Depending on the demand, we may increase the number of beds.”
Rohini Sindhuri said, “There is no shortage of ICU beds and there is no shortage of oxygen either. But what is worrying is the increase in the death rate. Patients from Bengaluru and other districts are coming to Mysuru. Those who get tested for coronavirus should stay isolated till the report comes.”
The DC said, “We are seeing more people coming from Bengaluru as there is a shortage there. ICU unit at K R Hospital is full and we have already spoken to private hospitals to reserve 50% for Covid-19 patients. We are prepared for the situation.” (MR/KS)
