Ward came corona positive in medical college, staff also feared to be infected

The Covid ward of Srinagar Base Hospital has been freed from patients from last two days but it is feared now that the ward will once again be filled with patients. Although there is no admission yet, the ward posted in the Gyani ward of Base Hospital was found positive in the rapid test on Tuesday. This caused a stir among the employees. The stir is more because the medical college administration has started biometric attendance in the base hospital during the Covid period.

In such a situation, if the personnel of the hospital itself are starting to come positive, then it is feared that the Covid case will increase due to biometric attendance. Base Hospital PRO Arun Badoni said that on Tuesday, 45 people were sampled for RTPCR test at Base Hospital, while 19 rapid tests were done. In which the ward of the singing department was found positive in the rapid test. At the same time, MS Dr. KP Singh of Base Hospital said that the female employee was on duty.

Rapid test was done when she showed symptoms, she was found positive. The employee has been home isolated. If the employee would have made biometric attendance in the morning like other employees, then there is a possibility of spreading the infection. Along with the employees, doctors are putting biometric attendance. Covid infection has not ended but has reduced, in such a situation, if biometric attendance is taken, then Covid positive cases can increase.

Sanitizer machine remains empty: The sanitizer machine in front of the biometric machine is sometimes empty. In such a situation, after applying biometric attendance, no employee sanitizes the hand. Due to this there is a risk of spreading the infection. The employees are not openly opposing the biometric order of the college administration, but are seen discussing continuously about starting biometric attendance. After the order of the college administration, from doctors to employees, they are compelled to make biometric attendance.
