Bathinda, September 7

The inflow of patients at the Advanced Cancer Institute and Hospital here have increased after the lockdown. During the lockdown, cancer patients avoided visiting the hospital due to fear of contracting Covid-19. One of the floors of the hospital has been turned into an isolation ward for admitting Covid patients.

As per records, 8,773 cancer patients availed medical services from June to August as against approximately 6,000 patients during the lockdown period from March till May this year. Apart from catering to patients from south Malwa districts, patients from Rajasthan and Haryana also avail themselves of the services here.

Dr Deepak Arora, director of the hospital, said, "We used to work effectively even before the lockdown was lifted. Though the inflow of patients was affected initially, later patients started visiting in regular numbers." — TNS
