The Guru Tegh Bahadur COVID Care Centre at the Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib
in central Delhi is starting operations from Monday afternoon with 300 beds.
Manjinder Singh Sirsa, president of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management
Committee, said 100 more beds will become available on Tuesday.
“The COVID care centre is being managed by 50 doctors from the Delhi
government-run Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital. They will be
supported by a team of 150 nurses and ward boys,” he said.
All beds have oxygen supply. The facility has a backup of 150 D-type
cylinders. It has all essential drugs, including Remdesivir and Fabiflu,

“Patients who need up to 20 litres per minute of oxygen can be treated
here,” he said, adding that treatment, ambulance service and food will
be completely free.
Sirsa also said that Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan has donated Rs 2
crore for the centre.
