An emergency and ICU facility will be made available at the venue of the G20 events to provide immediate medical care for the dignitaries.
A source further said that nearly 50 ambulances will be kept ready with adequate medical staff for the medical emergencies. The ambulances will be stationed at hotels where attending dignitaries will stay and at the key venue of G20 Summit to deal with any medical emergency.
The source added that a temporary ICU unit with all medical facilities will be made near the Bharat Mandapam. “The team of doctors from AIIMS and RML hospitals will be deployed at the venue and a green corridor will be made to deal with any medical emergencies”, the source said.
