As the number of patients declined, the government today decommissioned three Covid-19 designated hospitals in the capital.

Those hospitals are Dhaka Mohanagar Hospital, Lalkuthi Hospital and Bashundhara Covid-19 hospitals, according to a circular signed by Bilkis Begum, the deputy secretary of the health minister.

"It is requested as per the order to start treatment of general patients in those hospitals, due to having no Covid-19 patient or very few Covid-19 patients," read the circular.

As of this noon, there were only 29 patients against 66 general beds in Mohanagar Hospital, one against 121 in Lalkuthi Hospital and 11 against 2013 beds in Bashundhara Hospital, according to a press release from the health directorate.
