Health protocols flouted in hospitals, Centre's Covid-19 teams find

Apr 29, 2020 23:29 IST

Central teams that had been set the task of checking preparedness of districts with a high load of cases have found that correct protocols were not being followed in several state hospitals. This comes at a time when several frontline healthcare workers have been infected by Covid-19. The teams set up by the Union Health Ministry also observed that the temperature at which samples need to be stored is not being strictly adhered to, leading to the possibility of incorrect results, and that many healthcare workers were unaware of guidelines to be followed in handling a Covid-19 patient.
