CAPF doctors, healthcare workers being airlifted to Delhi to fight surging covid cases
A high-level meeting convened by Home Minister Amit Shah to discuss Delhi's rising corona cases decided to airlift medicos from Central paramilitary forces across the country. They are being allowed to travel by private airlines to reach Delhi faster.

NEW DELHI, Nov 16: The Centre has prepared a list of 75 doctors and 250 paramedics from CAPFs to be airlifted to help Delhi meet the challenge of a sudden surge in coronavirus epidemic even as elsewhere, including the worst hit Maharashtra, the situation has improved perceptibly, except in the State of Kerala.

This follows a high-level meeting convened by Home Minister Amit Shah with all concerned Ministries and departments and others like the AIIMS and the ICMR on Sunday. Amit Shah directed airlifting of doctors and healthcare workers from paramilitary forces to help Delhi tide over the covid crisis.

Twenty doctors will come from CRPF, 15 from ITBP, 12 from SSB and 20 from BSF. Similarly, 50 paramedics from CRPF and 60 each from ITBP and BSF are also being airlifted. Most of these doctors and paramedics will be deployed at the ITBP-run covid care centre in Chattarpur. Central forces all over India have been told to relieve extra doctors for Delhi with the exception of those deployed in Kashmir and Naxal areas.

According to a report, all the medical staff have been allowed to travel by private airlines to reach the destination at the earliest.

The Ministry of Home Affairs is also sending multi-disciplinary teams to check compliance of covid guidelines by Delhi's private hospitals with regard to testing and treatment.

DRDO will provide additional 250-300 ICU beds in its Dhaula Kuan covid facility and the ICMR will ramp up testing. Amit Shah ordered mobile testing vans in vulnerable areas. Testing will be doubled to a lakh over the next few days.

However, Delhi recorded a low of 3,797 new covid cases and 99 deaths in the last 24 hours.
