Eight persons have tested positive at AIIMS, Bathinda, in the past week. The infected include a senior official, four doctors and four staff members.

Hospital Director DK Singh is under home-quarantine. On the phone, DK Singh said, "Eight of our staff members, including four doctors and an officiating superintendent, have tested positive. I am also under home-quarantine. The sampling is on and the exact situation will be known once the reports are out."

The AIIMS authorities celebrated Independence Day last week. It has been learnt that they did not follow social distancing norms and were without masks.

A senior functionary of the Health Department said on the one hand, the staff were spreading awareness, exhorting people to avoid social gatherings and wear face masks, while on the other, doctors and assisting medical staff were themselves flouting the norms.

Dr Amrik Singh Sandhu, Civil Surgeon, Bathinda, could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.
