New Delhi: Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal said on Tuesday that stringent standard operating procedures (SOPs) need to be followed to ensure the safety of health workers in both Covid and non-Covid hospitals, after the recent spurt of coronavirus cases in the hospitals not dealing with the disease.
The statement from the LG came after a video conference with Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan and Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain.
In a series of tweets, Anil Baijal said that stringent SOPs should be followed to ensure the safety of the health workers.
“We have to emphasise on extensive testing, faster results, meticulous contact tracing and isolation with strict perimeter control in the containment zones. All stakeholders to work in unison to break the chain of transmission,” Baijal said.
Over 200 health professionals from non-Covid hospitals across the national capital have tested positive for coronavirus so far. (IANS)
