Reacting to the junior doctor’s demand, the Gandhi Hospital Superintendent, Dr. Shravan Kumar asserted, “The demand for shifting the Corona isolation ward is meaningless.” He stated that the Coronavirus will never spread from the isolated ward to nearby colonies and asked people not to panic over COVID-19.
