By commissioning these hospitals, three more hospitals were made ready for use, which are of significant importance in terms of combatting the spread of COVID-19 pandemic in the country. Assembling modular hospitals has ensured additional 2000 bed-reserve for the healthcare system of the country. The main objective here is to secure a single control and medical coordination in order to provide necessary medical service to coronavirus patients.
