Hyderabad | 21st May 2020
Telangana Health Minister Etela Rajender today said that treatment for Covid-19 was completely different from those for other diseases, and that it would not be possible for private hospitals to treat Covid-19 patients and suspects.

He said that the poor people of the state would suffer a lot if private hospitals and diagnostic centers were permitted to extend treatment to coronavirus-affected people.

He made these remarks after flagging off a mobile ICU unit developed by Grace Foundation, along with former health minister of the state Laxma Reddy at the Koti Hospital premises.

Speaking on the occasion he praised the foundation for designing an innovative mobile ICU unit.

He said that corona-affected patients needed to be identified as soon as possible, and that that would not be possible in private hospitals.

Referring to the orders of the High Court of the state to allow private hospitals and labs to serve Covid-19 suspects and patients, he said that the government would hold a meeting on the issue and take a decision on it.

He claimed that the government was strictly following all the guidelines stipulated by the ICMR.

The minister also refuted allegations that the government had buried some dead Covid-19 patients without informing their family members.
