As the daily Covid-19 cases begins to fall every day in the national capital region, hospitals in Delhi have begun reducing the number of beds reserved for coronavirus patients.
The Delhi government, which previously had arranged around 15,300 hospital beds reserved particularly for Covid patients, has now gradually started reducing this number to accommodate more patients suffering from general ailments.
As per the report by the Live Mint, during the previous two waves of Covid-19, hospitals across the country had stopped general OPD’s and had also restricted their services to only the most critical of cases.
With the number of beds reserved for Covid-19 being reduced from 15,294 on February 24 to 11,089 on February 27 in Delhi, the containment zones were also reduced.
Delhi also recorded its first zero mortality day due to covid on February 28 after a gap of nearly two months.
Although 258 fresh cases were reported from various regions within the city, the positivity rate stayed below 1 per cent. Even the total number of home isolation cases to be reported was reduced to 1,471, which is a significant reduction from more nearly 12.5 thousand home isolation cases which were reported at the beginning of February.
