Midland Hospital situated in the Sree Nagar area of Guwahati was sanitized by the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) on Sunday.

The hospital was sanitized after reports emerged that Guwahati’s first COVID-19 patient, who is a resident of Spanish Garden in the Zoo Road area of the city, underwent treatment there.

Six staff members of the hospital, including doctors, nurses and accountant, have also been sent to quarantine.
