There is another patient who came to the hospital to check up the doctor. These patients were the first suspects and their samples were first sent to Jaipur for investigation. Their report came on Wednesday.
Significantly, 15 out of 17 positive patients are doctors, nursing workers and other staff of Bangar Hospital. Reports of several suspects are yet to come. To deal with any kind of situation, the hotel, Dharamshala has been acquired and six thousand quarantine beds have been prepared. Corona was still concentrated near a hospital but is now in a position to move towards the community stage. Till now doctors, nursing workers and other staff were positive but now corona positive has come among the normal patients exposed to them. Among the hospital staff who came positive, there are two female staff. One is a receptionist and the other works in another department.
According to experts, one in four patients is elderly who had come to the private hospital for dialysis. When he was brought to the isolation ward, eyewitnesses said that he had difficulty breathing. His situation is more serious.
