The Srinagar disaster management authority Wednesday set up COVID-19 sample collection units at four hospitals and two quarantine centres in the district.
The hospitals where these were installed include CDH, SMHS and JLNM with two units each, and SKIMS Bemina with one unit.
The administration has also decided to install these – two each – at other hospitals including LD, GB Pant, B&J, SSH and KNS Sonwar.
The quarantine centres where these were also set up include KU and NIT. In each of these two units of sample collection were installed.
Meanwhile, the DDMA has also installed decontamination chambers at JLNM and SKIMS Bemina hospitals.
The installation of decontamination chambers is aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19 into and out of these hospitals.
