The Delhi government today launched a dedicated mobile app to help people find the status of total hospital beds and ventilators in the union territory. Called the Delhi Corona, the app is initially available for download on Android devices. It is designed to make it easy to find healthcare facilities for COVID-19 treatment. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced the launch of the Delhi Corona app through a livestream. CM highlighted that the app can be used to find healthcare facilities offered by both government and private hospitals in the capital city.
“This app will tell you how many hospital beds are vacant and how many are occupied at this moment,” Arvind Kejriwal said while addressing the media through the livestream.
The Delhi Corona app lists all the government and private hospitals that treat COVID-19 patients. It details the total as well as the number of occupied and vacant hospital beds and ventilators to help people in case of an emergency. The app also supports both Hindi and English languages.
It is important to mention that the Delhi Corona app doesn’t require any registration to access the information.

It also includes links to services such as ration, e-pass, and hunger/ shelter relief centres. Furthermore, you can view containment zones and even access the Delhi government‘s coronavirus helpline on WhatsApp directly through the Delhi Corona app.
