Maharashtra is the worst-affected COVID-19 state in the country with 9,719 cases being recorded as of April 29, 5:30 pm. In an effort to effectively tackle the situation in the state, a three-level plan has been prepared in regard to the hospitals and care centres.  Maharashtra Health Minister, Rajesh Tope said that currently, there are 1,677 treatment centres throughout the three levels and the state government has readied close to 1.75 lakh isolation beds along with 7,248 ICU wards.

What is the Three-Level Plan?

As per the Central Government directives, the medical facilities across the state have been segregated into three levels. Level-1 consists of dedicated COVID-19 hospitals, Level-2 consists of COVID-19 hospitals & care centres and Level-3 consists of only care centres. Along with this, the state government has also started fever clinics that will help in effectively diagnosing COVID-19 patients.

High-risk patients are treated in medical facilities under Level-1, patients with mild symptoms are being treated in medical facilities under Level-2 and the people who do not show any symptoms are being treated in medical facilities under Level-3.

Currently, there are 246 medical facilities under Level-1 and have 32,861 beds readied including the ICU beds. Under Level-2, there are 517 medical facilities and care centres who have managed to set up close to 31,000 isolation beds.
