“Around 30 staff members from the pediatric department have been quarantined but none of them has tested positive as of now. However, they are still under observation. A team of healthcare workers from the adult department has also been quarantined as it was looking after a patient who had died earlier. But the exposure in the pediatric department was bigger. Contact tracing in health care workers is underway. The pediatric ward is being sanitized,” the source said.

Speaking about the due procedure to be followed for case management of COVID-19 among infants, the source said, “There is not much clarity on the infant care during COVID because not much has been seen in our country, so there is less data on that. Every country is handling this pandemic situation according to their own system and situation.

“Therefore their ways of managing cases are also drastically different. One country said the newborn should be separated from the mother for 14 days and one room with one dedicated nurse should be given to them. Such logistics are not even available in our country.

“Another country has said that the baby should be with the mother and both should be taken care of. We will have to see what suits us,” the source added.
