Coronavirus: Amit Shah orders Delhi chief secretary to install CCTVs in all Covid-19 wards


Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday asked Delhi Chief Secretary Vijay Kumar Dev to install CCTV cameras in all Covid-19 wards of hospitals admitting coronavirus patients, ANI reported, quoting the Ministry of Home Affairs. Shah said installing the CCTV cameras will ensure proper monitoring of wards, and so resolve patients’ problems.

Shah also ordered Dev to establish secondary canteens to provide food at hospitals, so that in case there are infections in one canteen, patients can get food from the other one. He also advised Dev to arrange for psycho-social counselling of nurses and doctors engaged in treatment of coronavirus patients.

Shah said in a tweet that he paid a surprise visit to Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital and interacted with the doctors and staff about the coronavirus situation. He said he also reviewed the hospital’s preparedness to deal with its coronavirus patients.

“I thank and salute all Corona warriors who are serving the country round the clock in these difficult times,” Shah tweeted.
