Telangana: Make Ameerpet hospital building operational for Covid-19 patients, Marri Shashidhar Reddy urges health minister | Hyderabad News - Times of India


HYDERABAD: Marri Shashidhar Reddy, the former vice-chairman of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) on Monday urged Telangana health minister Etela Rajender to make the 30-bed government hospital at community health centre in Ameerpet operational for Covid-19 patients.
In a letter to the health minister, Reddy who is also the chairman of the Congress‘s Covid-19 task force, said though minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav had promised to upgrade it to 50-bed hospital and make it operational in a year, the hospital building is yet to be inaugurated and put to use for the benefit of the people.
Further, it is sad to note that even after a full year after the first outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic, the state government has not thought it necessary to take all steps to get this hospital operational, he said.
During the present second wave of Covid-19 a lot of people have tested positive for the virus. There are hundreds of people in the surrounding Ameerpet, SR Nagar, Balkampet and Sanathnagar areas, who have tested positive and are advised home isolation. Belonging to the weaker sections of the society, most of them find it difficult to isolate themselves in their small confines, as per the protocol. As a result of this, there is a danger of the spread of virus to others with them, Reddy said.
“I request you to make the hospital operational without any fanfare to cater to the needs of the people during these very trying times,” Shashidhar Reddy stated in the letter to the health minister.
