Question: Why health workers working in Non Covid are tested positive?
We can’t check and wait for the result of a pt who came as an emergency
If the area is not provided with PPE…and came to know patient I positive..it happens
Also, most of the non-covid areas are not provided with full PPE. And even provided ..there are limitations to use that over an 8 hrs shift of duty during that we use washrooms..have food..etc
We are in the phase of local transmission and community spread..that we have to consider any patient and relative as a positive case until and unless result come
If pt is negative n bystander is positive…the situation is again different.
