Warangal: Efforts are on to utilise at least two floors of the super-speciality hospital coming up on the Kakatiya Medical College (KMC) campus for setting up 60 beds to treat the Covid-19 patients.
In-charge Warangal Urban District Collector M Haritha, who reviewed the healthcare of the coronavirus victims being treated at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital (MGMH) here on Monday, directed the officials to focus on providing beds and oxygen facility to the patients.
