Two private hospitals in Miraj, Sangli district, were sealed by the Sangli-Miraj-Kupwad Municipal Corporation on Saturday.

The hospitals were sealed as two doctors operating in the hospitals, one in each, had returned to India from New Zealand and had subsequently not followed through with the 14-day home quarantine guideline set by the Maharashtra government.

The doctors, whose identities are being withheld at this point, are a paediatrician and a gynaecologist.

“We were informed that one of them had returned on March 8 and the other on March 10. We asked them and they co-operated willingly. One of them had home quarantine stamp,” said Smruti Patil, deputy commissioner.

The hospitals will now be closed for 14 days. Patients in the OPDs were referred to other hospitals.

“No patients from either hospital not showing any primary symptoms at the moment,” said deputy commissioner Patil.

The doctors have not been tested for Covid-19 infection yet.
