LG Manoj Sinha today reviewed progress on 500-bedded Covid Hospital being set up by DRDO in Khonmoh, Srinagar. Directed DRDO, district officials to expedite the pace of work for its completion by 5th June for trial-run of all the facilities.


Directed the officials to prepare a 25-bedded Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) in the facility with dedicated team of doctors, consultants, nurses, dieticians and coordinators.

My focus is to ensure high quality of care with sincere effort, rapid and efficient interventions, while integrating the emergency response of healthcare services at the Hospital to fight Covid-19 pandemic.

Staffing, medical supplies, durable equipments, diagnostic tools and other logistics to be ready within the timeline. Nothing is more important than people’s lives and administration is working round-the-clock towards best healthcare facilities for everyone, every corner of J&K.
