Bengaluru: The Karnataka Government has urged the Centre to consider setting up Covid Care Centres in the State with the help of the Ministry of Defence or Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

In a letter to Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Deputy Chief Minister Laxman Savadi said the Department of Defence has a large land bank in Bengaluru and Belagavi, which is suitable for the said cause.

Referring to DRDO’s initiative in setting up exclusive COVID Hospitals and Medical Centres in Delhi, Lucknow, Varanasi and Ahmedabad, he said due to a surge in Coronavirus cases in Karnataka, Hospitals are facing tremendous pressure. 

Setting up of such covid treatment centres in Bengaluru and Belagavi will not only help patients in the region but will further ease the pressure on existing hospitals and medical professionals, Savadi noted and requested the Defence Minister to kindly consider it on priority basis.
