Regardless of these changes, the hospital reassures that some services will continue as before, including diagnoses of patients and admittance of those brought into the hospital’s emergency.

ADK hospital also calls for avoiding visiting the hospital in non-essential situations. Moreover, if you must visit the hospital, ADK advises visiting with no more than one companion.

Services of the HDU were halted immediately for disinfection, and all the employees at the hospital that came into contact with the positive cases have since been quarantined.
