To rapidly increase capacity and effective management of the anticipated wave of coronavirus cases in the national capital, the Delhi government has started converting the Radha Soami Spiritual Centre into world's largest temporary COVID-19 care facility with 10,000 beds.

This facility would have cardboard beds, which need not be sanitised but are recyclable, this is one of its most interesting features.

"These beds are also really light, easy to assemble and dismantle. Supplying these beds for the facility is a matter of pride for us," said the director of Dhavan Box Sheet Containers Pvt Ltd, which is making and supplying the beds.

The Chhatarpur centre has a covered area of 12,50,000 square feet, as large as 22 football fields, with preinstalled fans and CCTV cameras.

The facility, being set up as per the COVID and healthcare guidelines of the central government, will function like 20 mini hospitals with 500 beds each, Said south Delhi district magistrate BM Mishra, who is overseeing the work

Mr Mishra explained that out of 10,000 beds, 10% of the beds will have oxygen supply, that is 1,000 beds. However, it will not have ventilators. The Chhatarpur facility will also have ambulances and its own pathology laboratory for testing.

The 10,000-bed facility will have at least 400 doctors working in two shifts, backed by double the number of paramedics. To ensure the seamless service the best e-managements systems will be implemented.

We are working on a war footing and we hope to complete it by June 30, said district magistrate BM Mishra
