In the wake of this case, the Delhi government decided to double the number of hospital beds. This decision was taken in a meeting chaired by Delhi's Health Minister Satyendra Jain.

Jain has also directed that isolated wards in hospitals must be kept in a state of readiness and number of beds should be doubled than last year.
