With the advent of the third wave, the government has given permission to hotels and hospitals to open Covid care centres. It has also fixed the rates which can be collected from the people though an official order.

These Covid centres have to provide treatment to coronavirus infected people as per the rules framed by the health department.

The centres have been warned against allowing infected persons without symptoms in the centres, collecting charges in excess of rates fixed by the government, and continuing treatment by retaining the patients even after they recover from the infection and warned of legal action in case of such violations.
