The J&K Government has established several COVID-19 hospitals which are working round-the-clock and performing sample testing swiftly.

Director, Health Services Kashmir, Dr Samir Mattoo said the government established eight hospitals in Kashmir and three in Jammu—exclusively for COVID-19 cases.

“All our eight COVID-19 hospitals are performing well and we have been able to reach out to people with some sort of relief amid this healthcare crisis,” Dr Mattoo said.

Dr Mattoo said with coronavirus declared as pandemic, it becomes imperative for all citizens to cooperate with the authorities to prevent and contain the outbreak.

He said the government has taken a slew of measures in terms of screening people particularly inbound travelers, surveillance and quarantine, isolation of suspects and was continuously monitoring the situation.
