37 Doctors At Delhi's Sir Ganga Ram Hospital Test Positive Amid COVID-19 Surge
As many as 37 doctors at Delhi's Sir Ganga Ram Hospital have tested positive for the coronavirus with five admitted for treatment amid a huge surge in COVID-19 cases in the country.
Along with most major cities, Delhi has seen a massive spike in coronavirus cases over the past few weeks, and the daily case count breached the 7,000-mark for the first time this year.
With hospitals getting many more patients in the past few days than earlier, a large number of healthcare workers have been exposed to the virus.
Many of those who have been infected at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital are young and most of them had taken the vaccine. Contact tracing efforts are underway.
A majority of them have mild symptoms, hospital authorities said.
