Delhi Govt. Accepts Our Demand To Setup Covid Hospitals in Stadiums
Jun 23, 2020 —
Let me start by thanking you all for the tremendous support you have given to our petition demanding setting up of hospitals in various stadiums of Delhi & for requisitioning services of medical staff from Green & Orange Zones to operate these additional facilities.
We already have more than 1,42,000 signatories and this has ensured that the Delhi Government has heeded our voices and declared that stadiums of Delhi will be used to create additional medical facilities for treatment of COVID patients.
However, till now, the Delhi Government has not indicated how they intend to operate these additional facilities.
Arranging additional COVID Beds by itself doesn’t resolve the problem. We also need doctors, nurses and medical attendants to manage the additional beds.
The existing medical staff in Delhi is already overburdened and is finding it difficult even to manage the existing Covid-19 beds. Therefore, it’s important that we bring in doctors and other medical staff from outside Orange/Green Zones to operate these new facilities, otherwise we will be stuck with only beds and no staff which serve no purpose except isolation of patients.
The number of Coronavirus cases and related deaths is increasing everyday and we need to ensure that the Delhi Government acts and takes the essential steps before it’s too late.
Therefore, I request you to SHARE this petition with your friends, contacts and on your social media accounts so that we can generate more support for this issue and thus, pressurise the government to act immediately and take essential steps to battle this deadly disease.
