The Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan has given his office in Mumbai to BMC to use during the COVID pandemic as an ICU ward. His office has been used to keep the isolated patients who were tested coronavirus positive. In April, he has agreed to change it as an ICU faculty and has handover to the hospital management.
Since July 15 his office has been upgraded into an ICU and shifting the patients. Ther have been 66 patients admitted and out of which 54 patients have got discharged. While 12 patients had to be transferred to other facilities as the space needed to be upgraded to an ICU facility.
The 15-bed facility went operational yesterday, in association with SRK’s Meer Foundation, Hinduja Hospital in Khar, and the BMC.
Dr. Avinash Supe of the Hinduja Hospital Khar said, “It has been equipped with ventilators, oxygen lines, high flow nasal oxygen machines, and liquid oxygen storage tanks for high-risk and critical patients. The service will be run by Hinduja Hospital under the guidance of the BMC.”
The actor has always helped the needy with all his wealth and continues to do the same. Kudos and thanks to all the workers who are actively working in this pandemic.
