Hyderabad: Hotels turn COVID care centers for mild, asymptomatic patients

Hyderabad: In a bid to make more beds available for COVID-19 patients, city-based hospitals have turned to hotels to provide isolation for those with asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic infections.

Many hospitals have collaborated with several hotels in this regard.

In order to avail the hotel isolation facility, patients would have to be approved by the concerned hospital. Among basic amenities three meals a day, a doctor and a nurse would be provided at the hotels. 

A preliminary screening test would be conducted at the hospital to know the severity level of COVID-19. If the patient has severe symptoms and lower oxygen levels, the hospital would provide them with the bed at their own facility, based on availability. Patients with asymptomatic or mildly-symptomatic conditions would be provided with the isolation accommodation at the tied-up hotels.

Whilst the hotel rooms are being used to accommodate the COVID-19 patients, the required medical assistance at these facilities would be provided by the hospitals. Some of the hotels are even equipped with oxygen concentrators.

Below are the hospitals and hotels which have collaborated within Hyderabad, as listed in a report by The News Minute.
