“My son was having a fever and I straight away took him to GB Pant Hospital. I saw a heavy rush of children waiting for consultation,” said a parent Nasir Ahmad of Srinagar, who, seeing the rush, visited a doctor for consultation at the clinic.

Paediatrician at Children Hospital Dr Altaf Ahmad told news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that the number of children being brought to OPD at the hospital has almost doubled.

From the last three years. Children were not coming in contact with their counterparts due to Covid pandemic and there were no cross infections.
