The Covid care centre functioning at the Government Arts College Coimbatore for the last seven months has been shifted to the Coimbatore Medical College Hospital (CMCH).
When Covid -19 cases peaked during the second wave, care centres were set up to accommodate asymptomatic patients in institutions including the college, which is near CMCH.
As offline classes have resumed, college authorities wanted to make use of the rooms. “Only 100 Covid cases are reported daily, which can be managed by CMCH. So, we decided to shift the centre from GAC,” said a senior CMCH official.
As many as 4,451 beds in Covid hospitals and 3,884 beds in Covid care centres are earmarked for Covid patients in the district.
