Every COVID patient don’t need hospital bed, only critical ones should get it: Mumbai Mayor

Mumbai, Jun 06 (ANI): Reacting to the alleged lack of hospital beds for COVID-19 patients in Mumbai, city’s Mayor Kishori Pednekar on June 06 said as soon as people test positive for coronavirus, they think they need a bed but that is not how it works, and only those who are critical or in emergency should be allotted beds. “Only those who are in critical and emergency conditions should get beds in hospitals. As soon as people test positive, they think they need a bed but that is not how it works. There is a lot of pressure on hospitals,” Pednekar told media in the city. Maharashtra has so far recorded over 80,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus with Mumbai being the worst hit as it has over 45,000 known infections.
