    Does Mumbai Have Enough Hospital Beds?

The space crunch in Mumbai is making it hard for asymptomatic patients to brr home quarantined, leading to a shortage in hospital beds. 





To manage the overwhelming number of patients arising out of the coronavirus outbreak, the government of Maharashtra has taken over 80% of beds across all private hospitals and nursing homes in the state till August 31 this year. 

It has also capped the treatment tariffs that can be billed to patients and will now regulate the usage of private hospitals bed capacity.
