The Visakhapatnam District Administration is largely dependent on Gitam Hospital and Gayatri Hospital for treating covid -19 patients. As the cases are on rise, the administration started admitting covid patients into NRI Hospital.
To ease the burden of increasing cases the administration has identified 20 more hospitals for treatment. It will provide a better scope in handling new cases and reduce the burden on hospitals.
Along, with Hospitals the Quarantine centres are also increased after the border restrictions are removed. At present, there are around 40 Quarantine centres in Visakhapatnam district.
