Vadodara mosque turns into 50-bed COVID facility
Vadodara: A mosque at Jahangirpura in Vadodara has been converted into a 50-bed COVID facility demonstrating peaceful coexistence between Muslims and Hindus.
A trustee of the mosque told the media that in the month of Ramadan it was a befitting to do this. Long queues are seen outside hospitals in Gujarat due to the spike in coronavirus cases.
The Gujarat High Court recently said during a hearing on the overall pandemic situation in the state that COVID-19 patients are queuing up in ambulances as beds are not available in any hospitals.
The state Health Department said Gujarat logged 11,403 fresh COVID-19 cases on Monday, the highest single-day spike so far. As many as 117 patients died due to the infection. Reports said for the first time ever the number of fresh coronavirus cases has crossed 11,000-mark in a day in the state.
