Sisodia asked the public not to rush to hospitals in a panic if you are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms, the most effective way to fight covid-19 is through home isolation.

“At present, there are 320 beds in Burari Hospital, which will be increased to 800. The capacity of beds at Ambedkar Nagar Hospital will be increased from 200 to 600. The beds at Deen Dayal Upadyay Hospital will be increased from 250 to 750. 250-250 new beds will be added at Acharya Shree Bhikshu (150 to 400) and DRDO’s covid-19 Center.
