A Congress party delegation led by its City District President, Altaf Hallur, visited Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) Hospital and had a discussion with Medical Superintendent Dr Arun Kumar regarding the preparations the KIMS has made to treat the Covid-infected patients in the possible third wave of the virus.
As the state is witnessing more cases of Covid and the government has also announced stricter rules to stop the transmission of the virus, the Congress leaders met the KIMS higher-ups to get the details of the preparations the premier institute has made.
The members sought details like how many beds the institute kept reserved for the patients, oxygen arrangements, drug availability, and others.
Dr Arun Kumar said that the institute has 2,000 beds, of which 1,500 are oxygenated beds, and 1,000 beds have been reserved for COVID patients. The Vedanta makeshift hospital, which was built with the cooperation of Vedanta groups, has 100 beds, and the new MCH building has 200 beds, and on the third floor of the hospital building, 300 beds, and in the super-specialty building, 200 beds have been kept reserved for patients.
