OPD has been started for general patients in Kailash Nath Katju Hospital built for 5 lakh population, but due to lack of information, the number of patients is still very less.
On Monday, only 35 patients arrived for treatment. It is to be mentioned that initially the 200-bed Katju Hospital was reserved only for the patients of Covid-19. Due to less corona infection, not a single patient was reaching the hospital. OPD has been started in the hospital on the demand of local leaders and residents. Patients can go to the hospital from 9 am to 4 pm to get their treatment done.

Less patients coming due to rain
Katju was started as a 200-bed hospital but, at present, the hospital was lying vacant due to lack of corona patients. Hence OPD has been started. Due to rain on Monday, the number of patients has been less. Right now people have less information.
