The second wave of Corona is reigning havoc in the State. Yet, some people are yet to adhere to the Covid restrictions. And hence some markets of the capital city have been sealed so far. Some people are not getting tested for Covid, and once their health condition would deteriorate, they are calling BMC, said the Commissioner.
He advised to go for test, the moment someone experiences Covid symptoms.
For Covid patients in Bhubaneswar there are 3553 beds while 95 per cent of these beds have oxygen facility. Out of the 531 Covid ICU, 90 per cent have been occupied. Fifty per cent of the 2186 general and 836 HDU beds are still vacant, he said.
