The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has decided to name different wards of the newly created Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel COVID-19 Hospital in Delhi after the martyrs from the Galwan Valley, reports Times of India.

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and ventilator unit of the Hospital has been named after Col Santosh Babu who valiantly pushed back the Chinese aggression at the Galwan Valley and laid his life on the line of duty leading his men from the front.

The newly created Hospital is set to be inaugurated by Union Ministers for Home Affairs and Defence, Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh, on Sunday (5 July). The fully air-conditioned facility is equipped with 1,000 beds, with many being ICUs.

It should be noted that this hospital is separate from the 10,000-bed capacity COVID-19 Care Centre which has been set up at the premises of Radha Soami Satsang Beas in Delhi's Chhatarpur area.
