Covid

After Kashmir, the Covid infection is spreading in Jammu as well. Operations have been postponed after four surgeon doctors at Gandhinagar Hospital in the city were found infected. The Health Department has sent a surgeon to an alternative system, but due to the infection of so many surgeons, it isn’t easy to start the operation process right now. Meanwhile, the vaccination centre, which was closed in the hospital on Thursday, has been restored.

Vigilance has been increased after four doctors, and two paramedical staff got infected in the hospital. Recently, an infected patient came to the new OPD, due to which the hospital staff is also coming in contact. In this, first a staff nurse, then two surgeons of the operation theatre, an eye surgeon and an ortho surgeon, and a technician have been infected.

Family members of the staff were also found infected. This includes the ortho surgeon’s wife and daughter. In view of the increasing cases of infection, all medical institutions have been alerted. In this, it has been asked to follow the proper covid behaviour in hospitals strictly. Patients and family members are also being appealed to follow the Kovid SOP seriously.

“A surgeon has been brought in as an alternative system, but it may take some time to restore the operating system due to more doctors getting infected. Nevertheless, all proper arrangements have been made in the OPD and other units to prevent Covid. Of the 23 deaths in November so far, 17 are from Kashmir. But for three days, three people have died in Jammu” Dr Indira Butiyal, Superintendent, Gandhinagar Hospital.
