Deputy Commissioner Mr Pradeep Kumar Agrawal today warned the private hospitals that if they failed to provide medical assistance to the patients, then strict action would be taken against them. He said that clear instructions in this regard have been issued by the Punjab government stating that no hospital can refuse treatment to patients.
In view of the curfew/lockdown, the Deputy Commissioner appreciated the support provided by the residents and said that residents of some Mohalla’s and Basti’s still roam on the streets, which is completely wrong. He appealed to such persons in the public interest that they should support the District Administration and Punjab government by staying indoors. He warned of strict action against the people violating the directions.
The Deputy Commissioner informed that the total number of patients of COVID 19 in the district has reached seven, out of which one patient is related to Jalandhar.
