Question: Why health workers working in Non Covid are tested positive?
Nithya: Now asymptomatic persons are getting positive, so even if the patients undergo screening can also easily miss the test. So in non-COVID area staffs are working without ppe. And they are getting exposed. Till the time patient diagnosed as COVID +ve many of them get exposed already, that is one of the reason
In COVID area staffs are in protective gear. So the chances become less as compared to their counterparts
No segregation of patients those who are coming from a hotspot area too
