24 pregnant women test positive for Covid-19 at LD hospital

At least 24 pregnant women tested positive for coronavirus Wednesday at Kashmir’s lone maternity hospital Lalla Ded, with officials expecting the number to rise.

The healthcare workers, patients, and attendants were seen pulling their masks up after 24 patients were detected positive for the virus on arrival at Out Patient Department (OPD).

“Every patient has to undergo RAT before entering the hospital for the treatment. As of now, 24 have tested positive and there will obviously be more in Casualty and other departments,” a health official at the LD hospital told Kashmir Dot Com (KDC).
