    With decrease in virus cases, they can treat persons of other ailments: MLA

    The district administration on Wednesday decided to convert the Government General Hospital and RDT Bathalapalli Hospital into non-COVID ones in a phased manner following a request made by Anantapur Urban MLA Anantha Venkatarami Reddy to the District Collector to denotify the GGH as a District COVID Hospital so that more number of patients with other ailments could be treated.

    The number of persons testing positive for coronavirus has been coming down for some time, and only 1,871 patients are getting tretament in the 12 designated hospitals as on Wednesday. The GGH is the only government referral hospital in the district and several other services were hit due to accommodation provided to the COVID-19 patients, the MLA pointed out.

    Super Speciality Block of the GGH currently has 300 beds and the Cancer Care Centre another 200, which can be enhanced and the GGH can be dedicated to patients of other ailments, he opined.
