Telangana: Free coronavirus treatment to be available in 3 private medical colleges
The Telangana government gave nod to three private medical colleges for providing free treatment to coronavirus patients. They are Malla Reddy Institute of Medical Sciences and Kamineni Institute of Medical Sciences in Hyderabad and Mamata Medical College in Khammam. Permission is given to private medical colleges due to spike in coronavirus cases in the state and temporary staff of Gandhi Hospital going on an indefinite strike seeking regularisation of services. One of the protesting nurses said that the government gave an assurance of paying Rs 25,000 per month but not service regularisation.
