The first 20 beds will be operational on 06 May 21 with oxygen concentrators. The remaining 80 beds are expected to be operational by May 20," the IAF said.

According to the IAF, the 100 bed Covid care facility will be manned by specialists, doctors, nurses and paramedical staff provided by the Bengaluru Command Hospital Air Force.
