Coronavirus: Three quarantined in Doda hospital


After a coronavirus patient died in Srinagar this morning, alarms bells have rung all over the Union Territory (UT) and Doda district is no exception as three persons, who had met the deceased in Samba 12 days ago, have been put in hospital quarantine.

Doctors at District Hospital, Doda, are keeping a close watch on the people and they have been advised to stay in quarantine for two more days till they complete 14 days’ period. “They are showing no symptoms of fever, cough or cold but they are under observation as they have the history of meeting the deceased Covid-19 patient of Srinagar. They reached here 12 days after being part of the same group who had met the deceased in Samba,” said an official of District Hospital, Doda.

But this has sent shock waves in the area as people fear if any person is tested positive here, he or she might infect others and in absence of proper healthcare facility, it will wreck havoc in the area.

Meanwhile, the district administration has kept 35 persons in a quarantine centre, established in community hall, Doda, where a 100-bedded new quarantine facility was established a few days back. Doctors are continuously monitoring these people and are infusing confidence among them to stay safe, reported The Tribune.
