Srinagar Jan 16:(KNS) Jammu & Kashmir RTI Movement has appealed to Govt not to shut down the OutPatient Department’s (OPDs)in all the Govt hospitals especially for pregnant women patients under the garb of controlling COVID 19 pandemic.

Chairman RTI Movement Dr Raja Muzaffar said that on Friday many hospitals shut down their OPDs which includes SKIMS Medical College Bemina.

“ At least 40 to 45 pregnant patients at SKIMS hospital Bemina had to return back without being examined as the hospital OPD was shut down around 12:45 pm as the SKIMS Bemina has been converted into designated  COVID center according to Govt.” said Dr Raja Muzaffar

 “The pregnant patients are being referred to Laladed hospital from various districts which is more dangerous as it will increase the rush of patients. I appeal authorities to throw open OPDs at least for pregnant women across Kashmir” Dr Raja Muzaffar added.(KNS
