How to download and find beds on the Delhi Corona App
Step 1: Download Delhi Corona App
Head over to the Google Play Store and download the Delhi Corona Application.
Step 2: Look for the ‘COVID-19 Beds’ option
On the home screen of the app, look for the ‘COVID-19 Beds’ menu. On the page that follows, you should see a list of COVID-19 Beds available in hospitals near you.
Step 3: Look for the ‘COVID-19 Ventilators’ option if you require a ventilator
If you need a ventilator, tap on the ‘COVID-19 Ventilators’ option on the main screen instead. This should show you where beds with ventilators are available in the vicinity.
Note that the Delhi government has also imposed strict operations on the unavailability of beds if it is visible on the app. So if you go to one of the hospitals for a bed, which you found on the app, the hospital cannot deny you a bed. If they do, you can immediately call on 1031. The helpline number will contact the hospital in question directly and provide a bed to you on the spot. The database on the Delhi Corona App is updated twice a day at 10 am in the morning and 6 pm in the evening.
