Chief Minister said that due to sudden rise in the number of Covid-19 cases during month of August-September last year need was felt to create Make Shift Hospitals in the State to cope with requirement of beds for Covid-19 patients without affecting the medical treatment of the other patients. He said that these Make Shift Hospitals constructed by CSIR-CBRI were not only constructed in very short time but have all the modern facilities. He said that now with sharp decrease in number of active cases of corona virus cases in Himachal Pradesh, the State Government has decided to convert the Make Shift Hospital at IGMC Shimla as Medicine Intensive Care Unit, Make Shift Hospital at Tanda as Communicable Diseases ward, Make Shift Hospital at Nalagarh as Trauma Care Centre and Make Shift Hospital at Nerchowk in Mandi district as Super speciality ward to facilitate the people.
