Since the nationwide lockdown, all OPD services for new and follow-up registrations were terminated in a bid to divert the healthcare workers for Covid-19 management. Doctors at JNMC were providing tele-consultancy to all patients undergoing treatment in an effort to reduce the need for them to visit the facility during the lockdown. The OPDs are opening after the Central Government allowed for restrictions to be lifted in a phased manner.
