In a separate development, the civic administration in Pune stopped admitting patients at the newly-created COVID-19 jumbo hospital in the city as of now due to “shortage of manpower” there, a top official said on Friday.

On Wednesday, a reporter of a Marathi new channel died at this facility, set up on the premises of the College of Engineering, Pune (COEP) allegedly as he did not get a cardiac ambulance on time.

Following his death, there were allegations about mismanagement at the jumbo hospital. Pune Municipal Commissioner Vikram Kumar had sought issuance of show-cause notices to the agencies operating the facility.
