The new setup with two Covid-19 hospitals and a SARI hospital in the district is expected to help tackle the sudden surge of positive cases. DESUN has 60 beds and Dr. Chang's 100 beds. The number of medical staff including doctors, nurses and lab assistants getting affected in the district is also a major cause of concern. "We have notified the health department for the appointment of more doctors for NBMCH and Covid-19 hospitals" added the CMOH. Around 8 doctors will be appointed at present at NBMCH and Covid-19 hospitals. Doctors and Lab technicians will also be brought in from other health centers.
