Godhra mosque turns one floor into Covid care unit | Vadodara News

VADODARA: For so long, since the time of the pandemic outbreak, the second biggest mosque in Godhra had been offering prayers for Covid-19 patients. However, it has now taken its services a step ahead and turned one of its floor into a care centre for Covid patients.
Opened last week, this facility is already facilitating treatment to nine positive patients from different communities. The ground floor of Aadam mosque, which was designed to accommodate female haj pilgrims, has now been converted into a designated Covid-19 care centre. The decision by the mosque’s managing trust was inspired by the rise in the number of cases in the region.
“Godhra Muslim Samaj, our maulvis and a group of Muslim doctors had sought permission from the district collector and chief district health officer for a 50-bed facility. We got approval for a 32 beds and started the facility on July 11. Of these 32 beds, 16 are for patients to be kept in isolation while the other 16 are for positive patients,” said a doctor.
“We had bought hospital furniture from a hospital in Ahmedabad which was closing down,” said Abdul Kadir Hayaat, mosque’s managing trustee.
