Earlier, in the GAP analysis at the end of July, the Health Department had made projections of 59,209 cases by the end of August.

Ashok Meena, Commissioner, Food and Drug Administration, who is the nodal officer for computation of data on Covid in Haryana, however, maintained that the department had kept the projections 50 per cent higher than they are actually expecting so that they are not caught unawares.

He said that the department's preparedness for the Covid situation is much ahead of the projected cases.

"With these projected positive and active cases, we will need 1,094 beds with oxygen support, 547 intensive care unit beds and 182 ventilators, but we have made arrangements for 5,952 beds with oxygen support, 2,245 ICU beds and 1,092 ventilators," said Meena.
