Madhya Pradesh Human Rights Commission (MPHRC) chairman, Justice Narendra Kumar Jain, on Tuesday issued notice to the state chief secretary in which he asked despite testing positive for coronavirus, several senior health officials of MP were not following the set protocol and taking precautions.
As per the media reports, two senior health department officials of MP went to the hospital two days after being diagnosed as corona-positive. The commission sought a report from the chief secretary on the matter that has to be e-mailed by 5 pm on April 9.
The district administration and health department were responsible for taking the officials found corona-positive immediately to the hospital, the commission stated, asking what action was taken against them for not doing so.
