Tirupati: AP govt setting up 1,000-bed Covid hospital with oxygen supply near Srikalahasti
The Andhra Pradesh government is setting up 1,000-bed Covid hospital with oxygen supply near Srikalahasti. Positive tested patients, who are residing in and around Srikalahasti, are finding it difficult to get beds either in SVIMS or Ruia Hospital in Tirupati because of massive surge in coronavirus cases.
On the request of the AP government, officials of the Eastern Naval Command have visited the oxygen plant at Srikalahasti Pipes Limited. They suggested to the state government to set up the Covid hospital within the range of 2 km from the Srikalahasti Pipes.
