BHOPAL: Most of the private Covid-dedicated hospitals have started treatment of non-Covid patients with a decline in the number of corona cases in the state which has reported far below 1 per cent corona-positive rate. However, some of the private hospitals were already carrying on treatment of both types of patients even during the second wave of corona by segregating them.

Niramay Hospital

A Niramay Hospital executive said that the hospital had begun treatment of non-Covid patients by keeping eight beds reserved for them. The management has reserved the beds to assess the corona trend during unlock.

Silverline Hospital

A Silverline Hospital executive said that both kinds of treatment were being carried out during pandemic times on separate floors of the hospital. Silverline Hospital never stopped treatment of non-Covid patients even during the second wave of the corona, so there was no need to start treatment of Covid patients separately.

Care Hospital

According to Care Hospital, it started treatment of non-Covid patients just four days ago. As the number of Covid cases has declined, the hospital has started treatment of non-Covid patients. Simultaneously, the management is keeping a close vigil on the corona trend during unlock.

Nobel Hospital

A Nobel Hospital executive said that the hospital had carried out treatment of both Covid and non-Covid patients during pandemic times. The hospital managed both the affairs smoothly.

Siddhanta Hospital

Sidhdhanta HospitalĂ­s doctors said that, for the past 15 days, the hospital had been treating non-Covid patients. Fifty per cent were Covid patients and the other 50 per for non-Covid, but, now, it is a fully non-Covid hospital.

Government hospitals were also to start treatment of non-Covid patients, but, because of the junior doctorsĂ­ strike, it got delayed.

AIIMS

The All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) adopted a strategy of wait-and-watch with the graded unlock. According to the AIIMS authorities, if the number of corona cases increase with the unlock, there will be a need for more beds. So, hospitals will wait for the corona trend to unravel in unlock.
