As the incline in the covid-19 positive cases across the J&K UT continues, this information by the Samba Hospital is a ray of hope for many out there. The patients admitted here are critically ill with low saturation levels. The Doctors and Paramedical staff have shown great efforts in the treatment.

However, District Hospital Samba lacks some high-end facilities for the corona virus treatment and patients usually have to shift to the Government Medical College in Jammu for level 2.

The need of the hour is to follow self precautions and the covid appropriate behaviour. Wearing of masks, using sanitisers, maintaining social distancing and not stepping out of the house unnecessarily is what needs to be followed. Together we can fight the virus.
