Srinagar: The district administration on Wednesday installed sample collection units, decontamination chambers in hospitals and quarantine centres in this capital city, as the Valley witnessed a record spurt in coronavirus cases today.
The Srinagar disaster management authority set up Covid-19 sample collection units at four hospitals and two quarantine centres in the district, an official spokesperson said. Two units were installed at Chest Disease hospital, SMHS and JLNM, while one unit was established at SKIMS Bemina.
The administration has also decided to install these – two each – at other hospitals including LD, GB Pant, B&J, SSH and KNS Sonwar, the official spokesperson said.
“The quarantine centres where these were also set up include KU and NIT. In each of these two units of sample collection were installed,” he added.
Meanwhile the DDMA has also installed decontamination chambers at JLNM and SKIMS Bemina hospitals.
The installation of decontamination chambers is aimed at preventing spread of Covid-19 into and out of these hospitals.
