Covid-19 spread: Only urgent surgeries at AIIMS from Saturday

Apr 09, 2021 09:03 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Delhi's premier All India Institute of Medical Sciences has decided that only urgent procedures and surgeries will be performed in its operation theatres from April 10.

The decision has been taken to divert infrastructure, manpower and material resources to curb the spread of Covid-19 in Delhi, the officials said.

The AIIMS has also temporarily closed down the routine walk-in OPD patient registrations, including at the speciality clinics and all the centres of the hospital, with effect from Thursday.

This has been done to minimise the possibility of a community spread of Covid-19 and optimise the resources for the treatment of the affected patients.
