Delhi: DRDO sets COVID facility with oxygen beds, ventilators

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has set up a facility in New Delhi with all basic facilities free of charge amid the increasing COVID-19 cases.

The facility set up by DRDO in Delhi includes oxygen beds, a large number of ventilators, zero charges, basic testing facilities, and air-conditioning, as per WHO standards.

If a patient suffers from any neuro or cardiac case, then they will be transferred to the All India Institute Of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

This comes amid the quickly worsening COVID-19 situation in Delhi.

Above 24,000 fresh COVID-19 cases were reported in the last 24 hours, the highest single-day surge in the national capital to date. There are now 69,799 active cases in Delhi.
