SDM Covid outbreak: swabs sent to Bengaluru for genome sequencing.

Hubballi: Samples of oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal swabs collected from the infected patients have been sent to a central government-accredited laboratory in Bengaluru for genome sequencing, said Deputy Commissioner Nitesh Patil.

Genome sequencing plays an important role in identifying the strain of the virus. The administration will chalk out a further strategy based on the strain of the virus. The results of the swab sent for genome sequence are likely to be available by tomorrow afternoon, said a source.

Speaking to Dharwad DC Nitesh Patil confirmed that there were no children infected with the virus. Only adults were infected, and only a few showed the symptoms, and most were asymptomatic.

The DC visited the SDM Medical College and Hospital campus on Friday evening. The civic workers sanitized the hostels, which were sealed down following reports of Covid cases.

Sources said that Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, principal secretary, and other higher officials had spoken to DC and took stock of the situation.

The OPD will remain closed until Sunday.

DC said that the OPD service of the hospital will remain closed till Sunday. Only emergency services will continue in the hospital.
