City hospital sets up Covid taskforce to handle paediatric patients
Gleneagles Global Health City on Thursday announced the launching of a Covid-19 task force to handle the ''complex group'' of paediatric patients.
With the anticipation of a third Covid wave, GGHC is prepared to handle the most vulnerable patient population as they are not vaccinated yet, the hospital said in a release.
''The task force has acknowledged that this group of patient population is special as they can range from newborn who are born to Covid-19 positive mothers to children up to 18 years of age having variable presentation including post-Covid immunological problems,'' it said.
The multi-disciplinary team of doctors include experienced General Paediatricians, Neonatologists, and Paediatric Intensivists and the task force is headed by Dr Perumal Karnan, Senior Consultant and Clinical Lead-Department of Paediatrics, it added.
