CM Yogi’s government to bear cost of treatment of Covid-19 patients in UP

The Yogi Adityanath government on Sunday announced that it will now bear the cost of treatment of Covid patients even in private hospitals.

Additional Chief Secretary, Information, Navneet Sehgal said that hospitals have been asked not to turn away patients.

“In case there are no beds available in government hospitals, the patients will be sent to a private hospital and the state government will bear the entire cost of treatment,” he said.

According to a government release, the last rites of every Covid casualty will be done as per the religion of the patient and the state government will bear the cost.

Directives in this regard have been sent to officials in rural and urban areas in the state.
