The 15-bed facility went operational on Saturday
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's office space in Mumbai is now an Intensive Care Unit for critical Covid-19 patients. The 15-bed facility went operational on Saturday, in association with SRK's Meer Foundation, Hinduja Hospital in Khar, Mumbai and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
As per the hospital's senior doctor, Khan's four storey building is now equipped with ventilators, and oxygen lines for critical patients. On top of that, resident doctors, nursing staff and paramedical staff will be available round the clock, throughout the week.
On April 24, Khan and his wife Gauri had announced an array of initiatives to help the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. One of these was offering Khan's office as a quarantine facility with 22 beds. During that time, 66 patients were admitted there out of which 54 got discharged after recovering. A total of 12 patients had to be transferred to other facilities as the renovation started in mid-July.
