GUNTUR: The Government General Hospital (GGH), Guntur, is witnessing heavy rush of patients for the four days after the opening of non-Covid-19 outpatient screening.
The authorities have decided to deploy more staff including doctors for non-Covid-19 duties. The slowing down of Covid-19 cases has helped the GGH administration in shifting staff from Covid-19 wing to other departments.
The number of Covid-19 cases has come down to 600 per day in the district, easing the burden on GGH. The number of active cases in the district are only around 5,000.
GGH superintendent Dr N Prabhavati requested senior professionals and other staff to return to non-covid-19 duties. She said there was an urgent need to ramp up OP services of non-Covid-19 complaints.
GGH is the biggest public health institution in the state with around 3,500 patient turnout before the outbreak of Covid-19.
