Health Minister Anil Vij on Saturday ordered for opening all kinds of OPDs in all government hospitals in the state. Earlier, due to Covid scare, the OPDs were closed.
“I have ordered for opening all kinds of OPDs in government hospitals. A protocol is being prepared for it. The norm of social distancing has to be followed,” said Vij.
“Earlier, we had started OPDs in Primary Health Centres (PHCs) and Community Health Centres (CHCs). We will open OPDs in a phased manner,” said Dr Suraj Bhan Kamboj, Director General Health Services (DGHS).
Meanwhile, Vij clarified that there would be no relaxation in strictness along borders with Delhi and other states. There are 163 entry or exit points in Haryana with neighbouring states. “All the recent cases are due to infection spread from Delhi. If we continue to close borders for the next 15-16 days, situation will become normal in the state,” he said.
