The ₹25-lakh ICU was set up using funds allotted by T.N. Prathapan, MP.

Since Mr. Prathapan was advised by the medical board to undergo home quarantine following his visit to the Walayar check-post, where a COVID-19 patient was present, the MP inaugurated the ICU through videoconferencing from his home.
