The uninterrupted media reports forced the authorities to respond and take steps to build temporary sheds for the patients. They also promised to add 200 new beds to the centre – need of the hour.

These are basic needs and not difficult for anyone at the helm to understand. Unfortunately, no attempts were made earlier to fix the issues. Hope such incidents are not repeated in future.
