Cochin: Sometime in August, the Adlux Convention Centre, on the outskirts of Ernakulam in Kerala, was turned into a second-line treatment centre for Covid-19 as cases began to rise.
The centre, which was converted into a first-level care centre in June, is now equipped to take care of the medical needs of patients. About 180 of its 250 beds are currently occupied, mostly by elderly Covid-19 patients and those with co-morbidities.
Doctors and nurses are posted on a 10-day shift here and two ambulances — one regular and another with ICU facilities — wait to shift patients as and where needed.
The centre is attached to the Government Medical College, Kalamassery, which has been functioning as a Covid facility. Patients needing further care are shifted from the centre to the government hospital by the district administration.
