CPIML Team Visits Hospital in North-West Delhi


Satyavadi Raja Harishchandra Hospital in Narela (near Singhu border) is the only government Covid hospital that covers a large rural population in North-West Delhi. On 30 April a CPIML team comprising Delhi State Secretary Ravi Rai and Surendra Panchal visited the hospital and took stock of the situation. The biggest weak point of this Covid hospital is that it does not contain even a single ICU bed. On talking to the families of patients admitted here, the team learnt that if a patient becomes serious they have to rush to other parts of Delhi as there are no ICU beds here. This hospital has only 50 normal beds and 100 oxygen beds. The oxygen beds are constantly full, and there was zero vacancy even on the day of the team's visit. People could also be seen running around trying to arrange medicines like Remdesivir and FabiFlu. Our demand is that the government should arrange a minimum of 50 ICU beds at this hospital. Only then can the lives of seriously ill patients from densely populated Narela, Bawana, Singhu, Singhola, Tikri Khurd, and Alipur be saved. The government should take immediate steps for this.
