COVID-19: Guj CM gets briefed on civil hospital conditions

Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Friday took stock through video conference of the conditions of the Civil Hospital in Ahmedabad, the city’s prime COVID-19 facility, in the news recently after the High Court said conditions there were “pathetic” and “worse than a dungeon”.

Rupani spoke to doctors and patients, inquired about facilities at the 1200-bed COVID-19 hospital, and was given a detailed briefing by Civil Superintendent MM Prabhakar, a state government release said.

The Civil Hospital accounts for a sizable number of the 798 deaths due COVID-19 in Ahmedabad district so far.

Earlier, Prabhakar had said the high death count at Civil Hospital was due to patients coming late to the facility for treatment.
