New Delhi: The Delhi government ordered FIRs against two hospitals for allegedly giving incorrect information about availability of Covid beds on the Delhi Corona app. The Legal action have been sought under Delhi Disaster Management Act.
After receiving a complaint against a hospital in South Delhi, the hospital refused to provide any beds despite the Delhi Covid app showing 239 empty beds, and the Delhi government ordered legal action against it.
A similar action was taken against another hospital in Janakpuri. The hospital claimed on the app that there were 93-bed vacancies but refused to admit patients who claimed that they could not use the beds.
Recently, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal instructed officials to take severe action against hospitals that uploaded erroneous information about the availability of beds.
All hospitals in the capital must declare information about the availability of beds on the government’s Delhi Corona app and on the hospital’s LED boards. The Delhi government has appointed senior officials from these hospitals to take care of these problems.
The Delhi government also ordered the FIRs of the four airlines to carry passengers from Maharashtra to India without a valid RT-PCR tests.
