New Delhi: Asserting that there was no data on exact numbers, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain on Monday said that about 80-90 health workers in the city have tested positive for coronavirus, with majority from non-COVID hospitals.

Speaking to the media here, Jain said the cases are not being reported from the COVID-dedicated hospital.

“We have found that in the COVID-dedicated hospitals the staffers are not testing positive. The health workers from non-COVID hospitals are testing positive,” Jain said.

He said there are two COVID-dedicated hospitals in Delhi — Rajiv Gandhi and Lok Nayak Hospitals.

“The positive cases in these are very rare. The cases are coming from other locations. It means they are not taking proper precautions,” Jain said. (IANS)
