Officials of the Health Department have been caught on the wrong foot, this time for flouting the Covid-19 safety protocol.

In a video released by health officials today, a fitness instructor, engaged by the department for staff and patients at the Covid hospital at Thehri village here, is seen taking a yoga class on the hospital premises without wearing the mask.

“The hospital is a sensitive zone and it is surprising to see the fitness instructor not wearing the mask. The administration should take action in this regard,” said residents. Local vendors had earlier been booked for not wearing the mask. “The offender at the hospital should also be booked,” they said. A health official said the employees were wearing masks during the class. The instructor who flouted the protocol must be directed not to repeat this in future, he said. — TNS
