Hospital authority makes Covid-19 negative certificates mandatory for new admissions

Twelve mental health patients, three doctors and seven nurses have been infected with Covid-19 at Pabna Mental Hospital.

The hospital authority sent them home to self-isolate to protect other people, the hospital’s Clinical Assistant Dr Masud Rana Sarker told UNB on Sunday.

Additionally, the hospital has made Covid-19 negative certificates mandatory for new patients.

"Several admitted patients started showing Covid-19 symptoms at the start of July. They were then separated and taken to the hospital's isolation unit. On July 13, another 12 of them tested Covid-19 positive," Dr Masud said.

"We sent the Covid-19 patients back home after receiving the test results," he added. "We will take the next step after taking stock of the situation."

Around 500 patients with mental health disorders are currently undergoing treatment at Pabna Mental Hospital.
