The Delhi government has started converting the Radha Soami Spiritual Centre in South Delhi into world’s largest temporary COVID-19 care facility with 10,000 beds. The Chhatarpur center has a covered area of 12,50,000 square feet, as large as 22 football fields.
As reported in a leading daily, one of the most interesting features of this facility would be its corrugated cardboard beds, which need not be sanitized but can be, and are recyclable.
“These beds need not be sanitized as the virus does not remain stable on cardboard for more than 24 hours; on metal, plastic and wood the virus can stay for up to five days. These beds are also really light, easy to assemble and dismantle. Supplying these beds for the facility is a matter of pride for us,” said Vikram Dhavan, Director of Dhavan Box Sheet Containers Pvt. Ltd, which is making and supplying the beds.
Dhavan Box Sheet Containers is one of the leading manufacturers and supplier of a wide gamut of corrugated boxes, corrugated cartons, corrugated rolls and corrugated sheets, packing boxes and printed corrugated boxes.
