"Hospital sector is gradually recovering from the impact of Covid-19. Covid-19 business related revenue is helping them to offset losses in non-covid business. Mr Ashutosh, MD and CEO of Fortis Healthcare said that the Company is currently operating at 80-90% level in terms of pre covid levels. He further added, in April business was down to 27-29% occupancy for the Company which is now back to 65% occupancy. Last year during the same time occupancy was hovering around 75% for the Company. We believe in the next few months their business should be near normal levels. Although it will take time for international patients revenue to come back to pre covid levels."
