Srinagar's 500 bed COVID hospital to be completed soon

Srinagar, June 03 (ANI): A 500-bed COVID-19 hospital in Khonmoh area of Srinagar is in final stages of completion and will soon be open to the public. The Jammu and Kashmir administration in a joint effort with Defence Research and Development Organisation is setting up the facility to ease the burden on existing hospitals in the union territory. District Development Council (DDC) member Manzoor Ahmad told ANI that Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha will inaugurate the facility in two to four days. "We have put in a lot of efforts to set this up. This hospital can be accessed by people from the Pulwama district also due to its central location. It will surely reduce the load on hospitals. 500 beds is a huge capacity," said Ahmad. "It is a massive set up and we appreciate it. People from nearby districts and isolated places can also come here for treatment,” said a local.
