As a part of the new security arrangements, the building where corona patients and suspects are being treated will have a sub-inspector on each floor. One inspector rank officer will monitor four each floor, which means two Inspector rank officers are deployed in the eight-floor building.

Further, two Inspector rank officers will guard the entrances. Two Additional DCP rank officers, 12 Inspectors, 27 sub-inspectors, constables and home guards including women staff have been deployed at the hospital for surveillance.

Meanwhile, the medical fraternity has demanded deployment of armed forces at the hospitals where corona suspects and patients are treated.
