The Chirayu Medical College in Madhya Pradesh, which is dedicated for COVID-19 treatment, achieved a “first for India” by discharging 1,000 patients. This institute is among the nine hospitals which have been approved under WHO’s “Solidarity Trial” to conduct randomised controlled clinical trials. This is one of the many efforts to find an effective treatment for COVID-19.
COVID-19 patients are discharged on a daily basis by the Chirayu Medical College. Sources said the recovery rate in Bhopal is highest in India. And with the discharge of 1,000 patients, the number of cured patients has reached over 60 per cent.
This feat comes after the opposition attacked the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government for failing to handle the pandemic as it impacted 51 of the total 52 districts in the state. Congress leader Kamleshwar Patel, on May 30, had said Indore and Bhopal were in a bad shape.
He alleged the BJP was busy forming the state government when the virus was spreading rapidly across the country. “The CM has not formed a cabinet for over two months now,” Patel fired.
Madhya Pradesh has over 7,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 334 deaths.
