Srinagar: – The Indian military has built two hospitals for treatment of COVID patients, in Jammu-Kashmir. The military built these hospitals in a record time of 15 days. The Indian army is implementing various measures in Jammu-Kashmir to fight the Coronavirus, under ‘Operation Namaste’. The building of these hospitals is an important phase of the operation.
Coronavirus has claimed eight lives so far in Jammu-Kashmir whereas the number of Coronavirus cases have reached 741. While the pandemic is spreading rapidly in Jammu-Kashmir, the Indian military has come to rescue the citizens. The Chinar Corps of the Indian military built two hospitals for the COVID patients in collaboration with the local administration. The Indian military has built a 200-bed hospital at the Old Air Field Military Station, whereas, also has made a provision of 100 beds at the Army Public School in the city of Jammu. The military clarified that the hospitals are equipped with various advanced facilities like laboratory and X-ray. These hospitals have been built within the framework of guidelines issued by the union government.
Meanwhile, the Minister of State for PMO, Dr. Jitendra Singh praised the contribution of the Indian military in Jammu-Kashmir. Dr. Singh also shared the photographs of the hospitals, in Jammu-Kashmir, on social media. While the Indian military and the local administration is working on a war footing, for the fight against Coronavirus, the virus is playing havoc in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK). Complaints are being received that instead of sending any medical supplies and aid for the people of POK, the Pakistan government is sending Coronavirus patients to POK. The locals have even held protests over the issue. Pakistan is conspiring to settle people from other Pakistan provinces in POK, making the locals a minority. This is the reason that the Pakistan military is sending Coronavirus patients, found elsewhere in Pakistan to POK.
