On Tuesday, the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) offered to create and run 850-bedded COVID care centres within the premises of its Gurudwaras and educational institutions to cater to those patients with mild symptoms.
They are doing so to meet the growing demands of hospital beds in the capital.
The DSGMC has requested the Delhi government to give necessary permissions and sanctions for immediate operation of COVID Care Centres.
The committee has offered 200 beds at its fully air-conditioned marriage hall at Gurdwara Nanak Piao Sahib, 235 beds at Guru Harkrishan Yatri Niwas in Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, 60 beds (30 rooms) at Guru Arjan Dev Yatri Niwas in Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib, 11 beds at Guru Hargobind Institute of Management and Information Technology, 100 beds at Guru Harkrishan Public School, 40 beds at Gurdwara Damdama Sahib and 50 beds each at Guru Tegh Bahadur Polytechnic Institute and Guru Nanak Sukhshala.
Their initiative is being appreciated by Twitter users also.

A few days ago, the Delhi Sikh body launched ‘Langar on Wheels’ to provide food to migrants amid the lockdown.
That’s not all though. Ever since the lockdown came into effect, they have been actively preparing and distributing meals to the needy across the city.
We can’t thank them enough for their help and support, in these crucial times. Hats off!
