In view of the decrease in the number of cases of Covid-19, the Out Patient Department (OPD) services at the Government Doon Medical College (GDMC) hospital here would restart from Wednesday. The hospital is functioning as the dedicated Covid hospital and is also treating the patients of Mucormycosis ( Black Fungus). After the number of cases of Covid 19 during the second wave the OPD services of the hospital were suspended.
The Principal of GDMC, Dr Ashutosh Sayana told The Pioneer that the patients can get their registration done between 8 am to 10 for OPD services. He said that the OPD would continue till 12 am and in every OPD 25 patients each would be examined in a day.
The Principal added that the Radiology and pathology services for non Covid patients are available at the new OPD block of the hospital. He said that the facilities for non Covid patients would be gradually increased after review next week. Dr Sayana said that the hospital has been divided into separate blocks for Covid-19 patients, Mucormycosis patients and general patients. The GDMC also caters to the Covid centre located in the Raipur stadium.
