Bengaluru, June 16 (IANS) Karnataka government will establish Covid Care Centres to monitor and treat asymptomatic cases, said a minister on Tuesday.

“As the number of cases is increasing since the last two weeks, Covid Care Centres will be established to monitor and treat infected persons who are asymptomatic,” said Medical Education Minister K. Sudhakar.

He said an expert committee has been formed to advice on the type of treatment and care needed for Covid cases in different stages.

“BBMP commissioner has been directed to ensure that 20,000 beds are available in Covid Care Centres in Bengaluru city…This will reduce the burden on hospitals and ensure that beds are available for those who need it,” said Sudhakar.

On Tuesday, the minister deliberated with senior officials and experts on the best practices and the effective steps taken by other states.

He called upon the private hospitals to proactively participate in the fight against the virus and warned them of strict action in case they refuse to treat Covid patients, despite possessing the capability.

“Detailed guidelines will soon be released regarding the number of beds, ICU (facilities) and ventilators to be reserved for treatment of Covid cases,” he added.
