Delhi's Taj Mansingh Hotel now a Covid facility

In the first such move, the Delhi government has directed the 5-star Taj Man Singh hotel to isolate all its rooms and place them at the disposal of Sir Gangaram Hospital with immediate effect to accommodate Covid-19 patients.

The national capital is fast running out of hospital beds amid a surge in coronavirus cases and is struggling to contain the pandemic, after critics said it did too little to prepare and reopened shopping malls and temples too soon.

Some families of people infected with COVID-19 have complained about having to hunt for beds for their relatives after hospitals turned them away.

Less than a month ago, Kejriwal said the city's hospitals were well equipped to fight the virus as the lockdown had given authorities enough time to prepare. "Delhi will win, corona will lose," he said.
