Hospital Jammu and a senior officer shall be nominated from Directorate of Health Services Jammu to provide necessary coordination in the triaging and rationalization of admission of such СOVID positive patients;
The Nodal Officer shall also dedicate a landline as well as mobile number for facilitation of such patients. The said Triage Facility shall immediately come into effect henceforth, till further orders.
