Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has decided to deploy sub-contractors by division to provide food to Covid patients at its Dedicated Covid Hospitals (DCH), Dedicated Covid Health Centers (DCHC) and Care Centers Covid (CCC) in the city.
NMC will provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for Covid patients during the planned third wave of Covid. The civic body has already issued tenders for this purpose and contractors by division must be nominated for all six divisions once the tendering process is completed.
During the second wave, NMC had provided food to Covid patients at some of the Covid facilities, while NMC had also enlisted the help of NGOs and social organizations to provide the food.
This time, NMC has planned to provide food on its own.
The second wave was bigger than the first wave. While the number of active Covid patients rose to 6,200 in the first wave of Covid, active cases reached 28,000 in the second wave.
Considering that there may be a spike in Covid cases, the NMC administration has already planned for more beds.
NMC plans to create 13,000 beds in civil and private hospitals. Of the 8,500 beds ready, NMC has 3,500 beds prepared for Covid patients.
