| Wednesday | 12th May, 2021
For instance, the 500-bedded ICU facility on the Ramlila Ground opposite the GTB Hospital was supposed to start admissions from Tuesday but this was delayed with Health Minister Satyendar Jain citing "technical glitches".
The Delhi government informed the bench that these beds were yet to start as they were still waiting for oxygen cylinders and concentrators.
As for the delay in operationalising the beds opposite the GTB Hospital, Health Minister Satyendar Jain tweeted, "Due to some unavoidable technical glitches, extended facility of GTB hospital will be operational from tomorrow.
Team GTB is working day and night to ensure health care services are available to Delhiites."
Moreover, the Hansraj College here under the Delhi University has offered its hostel for setting up a 100-bed health facility for COVID-19 patients.
