The clinic can address the therapeutic demands of COVID-19 patients with equipment such as ventilators, oxygen systems, dialysis systems, and even ECMO systems.

The hospital will work closely with the city's health sector in the coming months to equip the center so that it is prepared for any circumstances.

The center received 22 COVID-19 patients on the first day of operation (July 19). Among them, 11 severe cases have had signs of recovery and are being closely monitored by doctors as of the morning of July 20.
