The Delhi government said several other states like Maharashtra and Odisha have also taken similar steps and put in place similar measures to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. There are another five suspect cases of Covid 19 in the hospital according to the figures which are up to date as of 8pm last night.

There are still a healthy amount of beds and ventilators available for Covid-19 cases nationwide, with the country's 2,000 beds in intensive care units (ICU) at 47 percent occupancy, 13,300 isolation beds at 44 percent occupancy, 5,400 ward beds at 42 percent occupancy, while only 25 percent of the country's 2,000 ventilators are in use.

After the Covid-19 cases were identified at MRHP, the hospital's outbreak control team was convened, in accordance with Health Protection Surveillance Centre guidelines.

Pfizer CEO, facing pushback, shifts COVID vaccine timeline to late November
The company said it hopes to move ahead with the vaccine after safety data is available in the third week of November. Department of Defense and the CDC plan to start distribution of vaccines within 24 hours of regulatory authorization.

Testing and contact tracing among patients and staff is continuing this morning. All other services at the Hospital continue to operate as normal.

THE DELHI government on Friday told the Delhi High Court that more than 50 per cent of ICU beds in 168 major private hospitals of the capital will remain available for non-Covid patients even when 80 per cent of the beds are reserved for Covid patients in 33 of those health institutions.

The spokesperson for MRHP confirmed that the medical ward is now closed to new admissions because of Covid-19 cases among "a number of patients and staff members". Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain, representing the government, said there is a prediction that in the upcoming festive season, the number of Covid-19 cases will go up. Staff and patients have been provided with key hospital contacts if any concerns need to be addressed. The government said the petition is an attempt to seriously imperil its pandemic management efforts and actually jeopardises the interests of hundreds of Covid-19 patients who have availed of the benefit of the order and secured ICU beds in private hospitals, at capped rates. Do not visit the hospital or any health care facility if you have any symptoms suggestive of Covid 19 infection.
