Bengaluru: Families and patients at a makeshift 45-bed COVID-19 ICU in Bengaluru’s government-run KC General Hospital are allowed to see each other every day on CCTV.


People are allowed to gather around a CCTV screen placed on a large glass window to see their loved ones admitted in the hospital.Also, a camera outside the window relays images of the relatives into the ICU.

The modular facility, made of 10 cargo containers, was operationalised in February.

A  person whose 32-year-old brother-in-law is admitted there said, “Here, unlike most other hospitals, we are allowed to see our patient which is a relief”
