It was supposed to be operational from July 31 but major works are yet to be complete. The hospital will function only after putting in place all facilities to the satisfaction of doctors. Then only health department would take over the hospital.

The early completion of project is necessary to treat COVID-19 patients, it said and asked health department to monitor work progress and its quality.
