The relentless work of the doctors, nurses, sanitation workers and other medical officers have worked significantly as the number of cases is coming down every day. The positivity rate and the number of deaths have also come down in the capital.
Dr. Chaudhary was a junior resident and worked on an ad hoc basis at the Delhi government-run Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar (BSA) Medical Hospital and College since October 2019. He worked in the flu clinic and then in its casualty ward until he developed a fever on June 23. Four days later, he also tested positive and was admitted to a hospital, where he complained about the difficulty in breathing. A day later, he was admitted to Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital (LNJP).
