Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain on March 10 announced that the state government will provide free treatment to all accidents victims in the national capital.
“If there is any accident case within Delhi and the victim is admitted to any hospital, including privates ones…then Delhi government will bear the entire cost of the treatment. The victim does not have to pay anything,” said Jain.
He was speaking at the inauguration of new ventilator machines at Delhi government’s Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital.
A total of 125 new ventilator machines have been provided to several Delhi government hospitals as part of an improvement in medical treatment in these hospitals.
A ventilator is a machine designed to move breathable air into and out of the lungs, to provide breathing for a patient who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently.
The Aam Aadmi Party secured an absolute majority in the assembly, winning 67 of the 70 seats in 2015.
