The CCC will be set up in Terminal 2 (T2) at IGIA and is expected to become operational by next month.

DIAL CEO Videh Kumar Jaipuriar was quoted by media sources as saying: “GMR is obligated to keep the airport operational and functional at all times. Since the onset of the Covid pandemic, many of our employees have had to suffer to avail healthcare facilities.

“With this set-up, we are extending our support to help in predominantly admitting GMR’s employees and their family members, as they are crucial for airport operations. The centre will be isolated as a containment zone and will adhere to all applicable guidelines and norms.”

The centre will have 15 paediatric high-dependency unit (HDU) beds, 18 adult HDU beds, and 52 isolation beds.

It will also be equipped with 85 oxygen concentrators and AI-based cameras for monitoring the activities inside.

DIAL has agreed to manage the CCC under the medical supervision of Medanta Hospital.

It will be responsible for managing day-to-day operational issues while Medanta will offer medical support such as patient care, pathology support, and emergency evacuation and admission of critically sick patients at the facility.

Last September, India unveiled a Covid-19 testing facility at IGIA amid rising novel coronavirus cases in the country. The facility was set up in collaboration with Genestrings Diagnostic Center and launched by DIAL.
