Eye on 3rd wave: Delhi’s Tilak Nagar hospital to get ICU ward, oxygen plant | Delhi News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: To tackle the probable third wave of Covid-19, South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has made various arrangements, including developing an ICU ward and setting up an oxygen plant at its Tilak Nagar Colony Hospital.
“The plant will supply oxygen to 100 beds placed on the first floor of the hospital. All other arrangements are also in place. On the ground floor, we have developed an eight-bedded ICU ward to take care of the critical patients. Last year, we didn’t have this ICU facility and hence, we were referring all serious patients to other hospitals,” said a senior SDMC official.
A project to set up oxygen plants at its Nehru Nagar and Kalkaji hospitals is also in progress.
“At Purnima Sethi Hospital in Kalkaji, the process for installing the plant is going on. It will take another 10 days. The plant will supply oxygen to 50 beds and thus, reduce our dependence on oxygen cylinders. As far as the TB Hospital in Nehru Nagar is concerned, we have signed an MoU with an organisation for setting up an oxygen plant under the CSR activity. We will soon initiate the installation process,” said the official.
Plants at Tilak Nagar and Kalkaji hospitals are being installed by IGL.
The civic body, in association with an NGO, has, meanwhile, launched a 60-day campaign titled ‘Win Covid-19 through awareness & action’. “It has been launched in association with Society for All Round Development. A vehicle will take rounds in different areas every day and make people aware about the third wave. The aim is to make people follow the Covid norms strictly,” said SDMC mayor Mukesh Suryan.
