Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will be present at the state-run LNJP Hospital here during the mock drill to ascertain Covid preparedness of the facility, official sources said.
A mock drill will be conducted across all Delhi government hospitals on Tuesday following a direction from the Centre, amid a surge in coronavirus cases triggered by the BF.7 variant in some foreign nations.
The sources said that during the mock drill at LNJP, Sisodia, who also holds the health portfolio, will be present at the medical facility.
The British-era hospital located in central Delhi has 2,000 beds and was the first to be turned into a Covid care facility soon after the first case of coronavirus was reported in early March in 2020.
