Hyderabad: Junior doctors working in clinical postings in various State hospitals have urged the Health Minister Eatala Rajender to admit and treat Covid-19 infected doctors at a separate hospital (NIMS, Punjagutta) as Gandhi Hospital was already flooded with patients.
Pointing out to instances of several states providing hotel accommodation to frontline healthcare workers, they wanted all the infected doctors to be kept in one place. However, no decision was taken.
Meanwhile, seven staff members from NIMS, Punjagutta including four resident doctors who tested positive were not shifted to Gandhi Hospital. They were admitted on the first floor of millennium block within the hospital premises. All the
infected junior doctors from Osmania Medical College have been shifted to Gandhi Hospital and are being treated there already.
Meanwhile, a delegation from T JUDA met Health Minister on Wednesday and requested him to consider rotational shifts with home quarantine facility, frequent swab sample testing, postponement of PG exams (slated from June 20) as the resident doctors have tested positive for last few days.
