One of the persons tested positive is from Hyderpora Srinagar who had returned from New Delhi recently after being part of a ‘Tablighi Jamaat’ attended by people from Indonesia and Malaysia.

One of the doctors who has been quarantined said, “The diagnosed case of COVID 19 was seen by me in SMHS Hospital causality, it is so sad that they lied about history of complete travel and charged on me and my junior when I sent them to CD hospital for testing. I was even asked by a notable senior to send him home. Thank God I did not.”
In his social media post he wrote, “I have fever and sore throat. I don’t even care of I have contacted it or not, I put my trust in Allah and believe that we are foot-soldiers in this battle. But I would not want someone’s arrogance and lying cost me my parents and friends. Please don’t lie and be arrogant.”
Sources said he and another of his colleague have been quarantined that they might have been infected.
“They are under observation. Authorities have failed to provide protection equipment including masks, gloves, hand sanitizers and gowns to doctors and other medical staff. We are at the risk of catching the infection. We are vulnerable to attract infections while treating patients,” a doctor here said.
One of the top officials here in the Government Medical College Srinagar however said, “We provide protective gear to doctors and other staff whatever is available with us. Even after someone can get infected, what can we do,” the official said.
Meanwhile officials said that two persons from Srinagar who were tested positive on Tuesday are stable.
Two people were tested positive for coronavirus in Srinagar on Tuesday who have been admitted to CD Hospital Srinagar.
“Their treatment is going. Both are stable now,” said the authorities.
