After completing a hundred days as a dedicated Covid-19 facility, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) has recorded around 80% recoveries out of the total 256 patients admitted in the hospital.

Meanwhile, 3.94% of the total patients succumbed to the virus.

The tertiary care hospital of the region caters to patients from across eight states, the majority of whom are from Chandigarh, Punjab and Haryana. A few patients from Uttar Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh are also treated here, an official spokesperson said.

The average stay of the patients was 17 days; 19 surgeries were conducted including a pacemaker implant on the positive patients.

Dr GD Puri, dean (academics), said, “A robust system has been developed by the institute for clinical care of the patients, but that comes at a price of sleepless nights. There is constant round the clock remote monitoring of patients, and doctors here have treated over 250 of them in the age group of one month to 83 years.”
