Patients or their family members can check the availability of beds on two contacts — 9625676944 and 9354835239 — provided by the authority. Notably, the NGO has around 80 doctors for reference who will provide round-the-clock support to patients. The centre has around 100 oxygen cylinders and is being supported by the CSR wing of a private organisation. The CEO of the Noida Authority, Ritu Maheshwari, inaugurated the centre on Friday. Officials said that an oxygen refilling centre was started on Saturday and two more will start in the city on Sunday to help Covid patients who are isolated in their homes.

The cylinders can be refilled at the community centre in Sector 93B and the community centre in Sector 135. The refilled cylinders will be distributed from 8.00 am to 11 am and the empty cylinders can be submitted from 3.00 pm to 6.00 pm on all days. The charges for the refilling facility is Rs 500 for Type D cylinders and Rs 200 for Type B cylinders. People will have to visit the centres with their Aadhar card, doctors’ prescription, oxygen saturation level report and Covid test report.
 

Ambulance rates fixed 

The district administration on Saturday fixed the rates for ambulances. Now, ambulances with ventilator support can charge Rs 2,500 for up to 10 kilometres with an incremental charge of Rs 200 per kilometre. 

For ambulances with oxygen support, the rate has been set at Rs 1,500 for up to 10 km with an additional charge of Rs 100 per additional kilometre. For those without oxygen, the rate is Rs 1,000 for up to 10 kilometres with Rs 100 for every additional kilometre.  “We decided to fix the ambulance rates in the district as we were getting complaints from residents about the ad hoc charges that some services were imposing,” an official said.
