Transparent assignment of ICU beds needed
Hate to say this but the miserable fact is that irrespective of state/city, most COVID facilities are being occupied by influential or well to do patients with mild/minimal symptoms. As a result, serious patients are being denied ICU beds and they have to run from pillar to post.

I've learnt that all the Indian States are in mission mode to defeat the Virus Expanse due to the very truth-some Indian Constitutionality that the Right to Health is embedded in the Right to Life for all in the Cooperative Federalism.
In addition, via Cooperative Federalism, the patients can be Air/Ship/Train/Bus-lifted to different States for want of ready-made Equipped-Hospital-Beds (EHB) on a military-action-model basis as much accurately and acceleratedly as possible from one State to a different State or anywhere within interiors of India.
Alternatively, using lighter hi-tech materials, Indian can even manufacture on a war-footing , 'Artificial Cabin Units(ACU) incorporating the 'ICU-Features' pre-installed in ACU such as Oxygen , pure-Air , 'Distilled water' , 'Medicinal water' , 'Lungs-Ventilator' , 'Bed' and last but not least important a 'Medical Specific Toilet ( MST) '.
These ACUs can be easily flown in from place to place by the Indian Airlines or Chinook Helicopters within no time for emergency patients .
