Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday said there was need for a permanent dedicated hospital in the state for infectious diseases.

He was speaking at the commissioning ceremony of a 371-bed Covid facility in Mira Bhayander in Thane district.

He said facilities to fight the Covid-19 outbreak were being set up at grounds and halls and were temporary in nature, while the need of the moment was a permanent facility for treatment of and research into infectious diseases.
