In a last-minute change-of-mind, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) of Bengaluru had to reverse its decision to establish the Covid Care Centre (CCC) at the Kanteerava Indoor Stadium and has shifted the location to the Koramangala Indoor Stadium.

Though the civic body had zeroed in on the Kanteerava stadium, realisation that it does not have a washroom facility forced the civic body to rethink its choice.

The Koramangala Indoor Stadium has a capacity of 400-450 beds and over 300 beds have already been set up at the stadium. The housekeeping staff has been arranged by the BBMP along with the health department.

Meanwhile, K Srinivas, commissioner, Department of Youth Empowerment and Sports, said the Kanteerava stadium will be the last option when it is too essential to be a Covid Care Centre.
