I listen somewhere that Delhi government is already having 8000 beds in advance.
What is correct news?
May be this is movable coaches-train brought in for remote location, where hospital is bit far.
Area of Delhi is not so much big.
Then there is some suspicious about this news, even few times previously also DH reported some news, which was not present in any other news publishers.
Figure of 8000 has come from Mumbai. Yesterday, CM announced availability of new 8000 beds.
