Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy today expressed disappointed at the arrangements made at the Telangana Institute of Medical Sciences (TIMS) by the state government for the treatment of Covid-19 patients.
Reddy visited the institute today and conveyed his displeasure to the officials there.
He advised the state government to take steps to improve the infrastructure at the institute and immediately fill up the vacant posts of doctors and paramedical staff.
He also advised the state government to turn the institute into a 1,000-bed hospital.
Speaking later about the general situation regarding the pandemic in the state, he said that the number of tests being done was very less in the state, and that the virus could be contained if the testing was increased.
He said that Covid tests should be performed in all the basti hospitals of the city, and for all seekers of the tests. He added that the virus was contained in New Delhi due to the intervention of the union government and that the recovery rate of the patients in Delhi was 84% now, and that the union government was extending a lot of support to other states, too.
