TIMS has 1,350 beds, laboratories, and ICU facilities, he said. The hospital also had doctors , nurses and all the medicines required to treat Covid-19 patients, Rajender said.
The minister said that if we recognise the symptoms and get treated for them soon after seeing some of the virus symptoms, Covid-19 is 100 percent curable.
Some of the Covid-19 patients have been found to be suffering from lung infection, and even after receiving oxygen they face trouble breathing.
He said he spoke to some of the TIMS Covid-19 patients and they expressed joy about the care that hospital staff receive. “We put liquid oxygen in hospitals such as Fever, Osmania, Sarojini, King Koti and Warangal” Rajender said. (INN)
