Govt to establish specialised hospital for COVID-19, infectious diseases

KARACHI: A 200-bed specialised hospital for COVID-19 and other infectious diseases will be established near Nipa roundabout in Karachi.
The specialised hospital for infectious diseases is being constructed under the supervision of Dow University of Health Sciences which is likely to be completed till June 30.
The hospital will provide special healthcare facilities to the patients of infectious diseases like coronavirus. According to reports, the development work of the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) was near completion and it will be opened for public by the end of June.
The construction of the hospital had been planned to complete by July this year, however, the development work was expedited to conclude its construction before the estimated time due to the increase in coronavirus cases in the province.
Moreover, the Sindh government also completed the establishment of the country’s biggest high dependency unit (HDU) in Expo Centre of Karachi within 68 hours.
The newly-established 140-bed HDU was equipped with modern medical machinery to treat COVID-19 patients in order to reduce the burden of other hospitals after a spike in patients infected with the coronavirus.
