A 100-bed Covid Care Centre with 70 oxygenated bed facility was inaugurated at Seth Mohandas Tulasidas Maternity Hospital on Jhansi Lakshmi Bai Road in Mysuru on Thursday.

Set up jointly by Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) and Cauvery Hospital, it was inaugurated by Minister for Cooperation S.T. Somashekar, who is also in charge of Mysuru district.

Mysuru has reported a sharp surge in COVID-19 cases with the number of active cases increasing during the last few days, leading to occupation of hospital beds by the severely sick patients.

While MUDA had arranged for the beds, Cauvery Hospital will manage the Covid Care Centre.
