Delhi government has canceled the leaves of all employees under its health department, including doctors and support staff of hospitals, as coronavirus cases in the city continue to rise rapidly. The capital has the third-highest number of Covid-19 cases after Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu.

“All MDs, dean, and directors of hospitals and medical institutions under the health and family welfare department are advised to issue directions to all the staff under them who are on leave to immediately report for their duties,” a government order said.

It, however, allowed the employees to take leave under the “most compelling circumstances.”

The order comes a day after Delhi Lt Governor Anil Baijal ordered five-day institutional quarantine for asymptomatic Covid-19 patients before they are sent for home quarantine

A senior doctor at Rajiv Gandhi Super Specialty hospital said they are facing a shortage of staff and in such a situation the hospital cannot afford to have employees taking leave.
