Jaora: Thanks to the improvement in recovery rate of corona patients, over the fortnight, the beds at Covid Care Centres (CCC) are now lying vacant in the city.
The corona patients are declining. To isolate patients with mild infection, 7 CCC were started in hostels and inns.
As per officials, more than 50 corona patients were admitted at 100-bed Madhavanand CCC. There are now only 28 patients at this CCC.
The vacancy in District Hospital is 25 per cent. It is likely that by June 1 the vacancy will touch 50%. The second wave of corona peaked in the first week of May due to which beds were unavailable in hospitals, said an official.
Instead of referring people to other towns, CCC were started to provide treatment at the local level, he added.
The second wave of corona mainly affected villagers but despite high rate of deaths the patients were not ready to leave the house. Starting CCC helped such villagers the most. Sashim School CCC, in village Kalalia, housed 14 patients. It now has only 5 patients.
Five patients were admitted to the Dhodhar CCC and there are only 3 patients here.
Out of the 7 patients 3 were discharged from have Girls Hostel CCC. All 3 patients Bardiagoel village and 13 in CCC in Upalyai village have recovered.
One or two centres are fully empty and if this continues, all the centres will be vacated soon. Whether the centres will be operated after that is yet to be considered.
