A 32-bed Covid isolation centre for students and campus residents has been set up inside Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in the national capital, following the Delhi government’s health department order on January 21.

The centre set up in one of the residential hostels at JNU is linked to the Delhi government’s Pt. Madan Mohan Malviya Hospital, which will provide manpower, logistics, consumables and medicines. It will be monitored by the New Delhi District Administration.

The JNU students’ union (JNUSU) has been demanding that a Covid care centre be set up on the campus, saying multiple students on campus had been infected with coronavirus disease in the ongoing third wave of the pandemic.
