    i had visited this hospital to check for covaxin vaccine. for my parents 4 days back. There was patient in the ambulance waiting for a bed outside the hosptial. I heard the doc ( the one in the far left in the second pic ) telling the patient family there. is no ventilator here, patient cannot be admitted. But our DC , MLA, district incharge minister all say no shortage of beds in our district. everything is under control. Its not the bed that matters i believe, its the ICU beds with. ventilators which are not available anywhere including KMC adarsha.
