Amid a fall in daily Covid case counts and a gradual unlocking of Delhi, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has determined to resume services in its Outpatient Department (OPD) in a phased manner, but latest by 18th June 2021.
Accordingly, HODs of all clinical departments are requested to provide proposed number of new and follow-up OPD patients per day who are to be given online/telephonic appointments, it says.
As per the notice, as of now, OPD registration will be done only for such patients with prior online/telephonic appointment and a decision to allow walk-in registrations will be taken later after reviewing COVID-19 situation
Medical Superintendent, AIIMS Delhi, Dr D K Sharma today issued a circular, asking heads of departments to provide the proposed number of new and follow-up patients to be registered for OPD services daily.
Delhi is currently witnessing a decline in Covid cases that has prompted the authorities to relax the restrictions imposed on public movement and outdoor activities. The city recorded 131 new cases yesterday over the past 24 hours. Experts have, however, warned that a hurried unlocking process and failure to follow Covid protocols may lead to another spike.
