Vijayawada: Schools, colleges and marriage halls have been converted into Covid-19 care centers in Andhra Pradesh. There are 13 such facilities, one in each district of the state.
The centres were started by the Andhra Pradesh government in the last few months, and these accommodate patients with mild or no symptoms of the viral illness.
The patients get packed food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and they have ‘entertainment rooms’ with access to television. Interaction between people, however, is limited, with the patients allowed to talk to each other only from their respective doors or balconies.
ThePrint’s photojournalist Suraj Singh Bisht visited one such Covid-19 care centre at the Narayana Junior College in Vijayawada, and this is what he saw.
