New Delhi: To help the community people and support the system in managing the coronavirus pandemic, the societies have started making isolation wards in their premises in Dwarka. The wards are mostly being created at the community halls or at similar spaces inside the society.
With permission and help from the district administration, societies in Dwarka have either set up makeshift quarantine facilities at their apartments or are trying to do so.
Neelachal Apartment has again started the initiative this year and set up a four-bedded quarantine facility for residents on the ground floor with the provision for oxygen cylinders, pulse oximeters, online doctors for consultation, separate entry, washrooms, kitchen, PPE kits, medicines, etc.
Akash Attre, a resident of Neelachal Apartment in Sector 4, said a similar facility was created during the first wave of Covid-19 in April last year.
“After the district administration emphasised upon developing isolation facilities in gated societies recently, we decided to set up the quarantine ward again to tackle the scarcity of beds in hospitals. It has been developed to offer immediate help to the needy residents from the apartment. We have kept four oxygen cylinders,” explained Attre.
“We have tied up with the doctors of nearby hospitals who will provide consultation and also recommend hospitals in case a patient’s situation deteriorates,” he said further.
Even last year, Neelachal Apartments converted their community hall into a covid care centre when the first wave of covid-19 was at peak.
