Health Ministry issued an advisory for managing Health care workers working in COVID and Non-COVID areas of the hospital
The health care personnel working in hospitals are at increased risk of acquiring the COVID-19 disease if there is a breach in personal protection while managing patients.
The health-work force is a valuable and scarce resource. A large number of COVID-19 affected health personnel getting isolated for treatment and their close contacts undergoing quarantine affects the health/hospital service delivery.
Therefore, the purpose of the document is to provide guidance on preventive measures, isolation, and quarantine of health care functionaries.
