Christian Institute of Health Sciences & Research (CIHSR) has informed that four of its staff, who were tested positive COVID-19, have been promptly isolated and all doing well.

According to CIHSR director Dr. Sedevi Angami, all contact tracing and testing had been initiated in line with the government guidelines. He also said that facilities concerned have been contained and decontamination was being carried out besides inspection by the district health authorities.
Dr. Sedevi informed that COVID-19 isolation ward has already been activated and was under very stringent control according to the standard guidelines. He said that no patient inside the ward was allowed contact with any other person in the hospital.
The director said staff in the ward use PPE according to standard guidelines and infection control measures. “They do not come into contact with any other staff outside and are segregated from the rest of the hospital and so have no means to transmit any infection elsewhere,” Dr.Angami said.
Further, he informed that all biohazardous waste generated from the isolation ward were disposed of by incineration in the same manner as the BSL 2 laboratory.
CIHSR director said that stringent measures have been initiated to ensure that patients and the staff were protected from further infection spread. He said that active surveillance was being conducted for all staff and patients and daily audits by the CIHSR rapid response team were being performed.
He said that CIHSR management was in constant touch with the district health authorities and keeping them updated.
