Divisional Commissioner (Jammu), Raghav Langar, ordered its establishment on Thursday.

As per an order issued in this regard, the move has been taken to rationalise the admission of Covid positive cases to GMC Jammu Associated Hospitals or dedicated Covid hospitals under the Directorate of Health Services in view of the increase in the bed occupancy at the Government Level-1 Covid Care facilities and limited isolation/ICU/HDU beds at the Level-l facilities.
