The institute had partially restored the physical OPDs to a restricted number of patients for which an appointment through tele-consultation is required. The PGI is a hub of tertiary care medical services in the region and used to witness a daily footfall of around 10,000 patients every day in the OPDs.

Prof Jagat Ram, Director, PGI, said they had to be alert so that those visiting the hospital did not catch infection.

“We are totally responsible towards the non-Covid services as well. We are catering to patients over telephone and in case a patient needs immediate attention, they are being called for consultation in person,” said he.
