Corona infection is spreading rapidly in the country. In the last 24 hours, over 1 lakh 79 thousand new patients have been found in the country. 146 people have died. On the other hand, the precision dose is also being given today. That's the big news. About 800 doctors in hospitals have tested positive for corona.

While coronavirus is on the rise in the country, doctors in Delhi's hospitals are also being infected. About 700 to 800 doctors in Delhi have been diagnosed with coronary heart disease. The test of this doctor has been positive. Now the infected doctors have been asked to stay in quarantine for 7 days. They are then advised to return to duty without any test,

This information was given by Dr. Rohan Krishnan, a resident of ESI Hospital, Delhi.

Corona infection is spreading rapidly among doctors in Delhi hospitals. More than 800 doctors from only 5 major hospitals in Delhi have tested positive. Doctors and paramedics who have come in contact with positive doctors are also in isolation. The health system has been badly affected due to a large number of positive health workers. The hospital has stopped routine checkups, OPDs, and unnecessary surgeries.

The worst condition in hospitals is in Delhi's AIIMS. About 350 resident doctors working at AIIMS have tested positive. This number is only for Kovid positive resident doctors, adding the number would be much higher if professors, paramedics are added, the sources said.

'A large number of hospital and paramedical staff have been infected with covid, which has had serious health consequences. Outpatient services, regular admissions, and surgeries have been suspended at the Delhi AIIMS, doctors said. In the last two days, about 150 resident AIIMS doctors in Delhi have tested positive.

The same is true of other large hospitals in Delhi. About 80 to 100 doctors have tested positive, sources at Safdarjung Hospital said. More than 100 doctors at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital have been infected with the corona. On the other hand, 50 to 70 resident doctors of Lok Nayak Hospital and 150 resident doctors of Lady Harding Medical College are positive. Dainik Bhaskar has given this news.

According to a circular issued by the Union Ministry of Health on Wednesday, health workers working in government hospitals will not be excluded if they come in contact with a covid positive person. Such healthcare workers should wear tight masks and keep maximum social distance.

The government should reconsider the guidelines for quarantine. Now more than 700 doctors have tested positive. Not all health workers should be called on duty together. The doctor should be called in two or three parts. This will allow doctors of any shift to be replaced by another team in case of infection, said Manish Jangra, a resident doctor at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.
