Hisar, January 9

Dr Shilpi, posted as epidemiologist under the Integrated Disease Surveillance Programme in the district, died of Covid after battling the disease for about one week. The 28-year-old doctor was fully vaccinated.

She had tested positive when she was at her home in Sirsa on January 4. When her condition deteriorated, she was shifted to a hospital in Delhi where she died today.

One of her colleagues in the Civil Hospital said she suffered from kidney failure.

Dr Subhash Khatreja, Deputy Civil Surgeon, Civil Hospital in Hisar, said she had tested positive during the first and second waves. “She was an enthusiastic health worker who never shied away from duty and responsibility. She was working at the post of epidemiologist in the IDSP at Civil Hospital, Hisar, for the past two-and-a-half years,” Dr Khatreja said.

She had got both doses of Covid vaccine. A multipurpose health worker who was working with Dr Shilpi in civil hospital, Noor Mohammad, said that Dr Shilpi was very devoted to her duty. “It is not clear how she got infected with Covid,” he informed.

Hisar district has a total of 290 active cases. — TNS
