Engineering firm Tata Projects on Saturday said it is augmenting hospital infrastructure with 2,954 beds at multiple locations across India to treat COVID-19 patients. "As one of the fastest-growing and most admired infrastructure companies in India, we felt the need to use our expertise in executing large and complex urban and industrial infrastructure projects towards augmenting, upgrading the nation's hospital network," Tata Projects Chief Strategy Officer Himanshu Chaturvedi said in a statement.

Today, the company is proud that its teams of engineers, technicians and workers are working tirelessly towards strengthening the fight against COVID-19, he added. "We believe that our support in the fight against COVID-19 will further help in once again accelerating India's progress at the earliest," Chaturvedi said.
