Odisha has set up a designated COVID-19 Hospital in Bhubaneswar to treat doctors and COVID warriors. The Aditya Ashwini COVID19 hospital in the city will cater exclusively to doctors and paramedics.
The order was released by the Health and Family Welfare Department after the demands from doctors’ associations.
Meanwhile, some beds at the SCB Medical College and Hospital will be kept reserved for doctors and COVID warriors in both general ward and ICU.
The step has been taken to ensure no healthcare worker faces inconvenience while availing the facilities.
