In Chhattisgarh, constant efforts are being made to increase health facilities to provide better treatment to the COVID-19 patients. In a unique effort in the Balodabazar district of Chhattisgarh, the warehouse of Agricultural Mandi has been converted to COVID Care Hospital. The district administration has set up this 500-bed hospital in just twenty days. It also has 120 oxygenated beds.
To provide desired information to COVID patients and their family members, a free helpline service dial 104 is also in operation. People can get information like availability of beds in hospitals, ambulance service, and home isolation guidelines.
Apart from this, co-ordination centres are being set up at the state level as well as district level to take the help of NGOs and other social organizations to deal with COVID crises in the state.
