Several posts have been doing the rounds on social media stating that the Indian Army has set up a 1000-bed quarantine facility in Barmer, Rajasthan with a 100-ventilator set up. The post further compares India’s facility to China’s.
This is a 1000 bed with 100 ventilator hospital bed set up by our Army in Barmer Rajasthan in 2 days for fighting Corona virus. We shared the 1000 bed hospital built in China widely . This is a much faster response with wide experience of our Armed Forces Medical Corps. pic.twitter.com/3gc2YCQmow
