The Government of Uttar Pradesh has begun to register private hospitals as specialized medical facilities for patients of Kovid 19.
In small towns in the state where there are no large public hospitals, private hospitals will be notified, UP’s chief secretary for medicine, health and family care, Amit Mohan Prasad, told reporters in Lucknow tonight.
We have already informed six private hospitals about the treatment of covariectomy patients, and more will be informed in the future. They will be converted into Kovid 19 Special Hospitals and will have five days to clean and disinfect their buildings before we move them to treat coronavirus patients, he added.

Although the government has created 10,000 isolated coronavirus beds, more and more of these beds have been identified by private health infrastructure, particularly in small towns.
The number of coronavirus patients in UP has reached 410 in 40 districts. Four patients died and 31 were released after treatment. Mr Prasad added that out of a total of 410 cases, the meetings in Delhi alone accounted for 54%, or 221 cases.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Adityanat demanded a revision of the artificial lung ventilators after the appearance of the coronavirus in the state. He analysed the law and order situation and sought the support of the people to alleviate the painful burden before a decision was made to lift the blockade, said UP Deputy Secretary-General Awanish Kumar Awasthi.

According to Awasthi, more than 12 million cars were inspected and fines totalling Rs 5.61 million were imposed on offenders.
He added that the State had facilitated the reopening of 455 industrial enterprises, while 26,644 enterprises had paid a salary of Rs 330 crores during the March blockade.
The government paid 1.13 million daily wages of Rs. 1,000 per day to compensate for the loss of employment. About 580,000 workers in urban and rural areas also received 1,000 rupees each, Mr. Awasthi added.
