Centre writes to SC: Makeshift hospitals needed to accommodate COVID-19 patients

The Central Government in an affidavit to Supreme Court said, "The number of cases of COVID are "constantly increasing and at some point of time in near future, apart from existing hospitals, a large number of temporary make-shift hospitals will have to be created in order to accommodate COVID-19 patients requiring admission, medical care and treatment."

The affidavit also stated that it would create an "optimum infrastructure" and "adequately address human resource issue for this envisaged surge capacity scenario".

With the worst surge of 9,304 cases in a day so far, the total tally of coronavirus cases in India mounted to 2,16,919, a Health Ministry data revealed on Thursday.

Of the total cases 1,06,737 are active, while 1,04,107 persons have been cured and discharged from the hospitals.

The recovery rate of COVID cases is now 47.99 per cent, while the death rate docked at 2.8 per cent. India continued to be the seventh worst hit country from the pandemic inching towards Italy's corona tally.
