In the capital of India, New Delhi, they began to create the world's largest infectious diseases hospital for patients with COVID-19.


“We have found a very large covered space,” says BM Mishra, head of the southern district of New Delhi. “We are now dividing it into separate zones with partitions. That is, we have decided to convert it into a field hospital with 10,000 beds.”< br>

For the accelerated equipment of the hospital, the municipal authorities ordered the use of the Radha Suomi Spiritual Center. The need to create additional beds is due to the forecast made by government analysts. Today, the cities of New Delhi, Mumbai (formerly Bombay, Maharashtra) and Chennai (Tamil Nadu) show a sharp increase in the number of cases of SARS CoV-2. At the same time, in the capital, the infectious diseases departments of all hospitals have a total capacity of approximately 10,000 beds. Of these, about 5,500 are already occupied by patients infected with COVID-19.

According to the statistical forecast, the country will need an additional 150,000 beds in July, as the number of cases could grow 13 times to 550,000. However, it should be noted that in this case, the most severe of all potential scenarios is considered, since only 12,200 cases of the disease have been registered in India to date, including mild forms that do not require hospital treatment.
