COVID 2019 PANDEMIC: CAUTION AND PRECAUTION

The entire world is facing an unprecedented pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus. The global pandemic has affected almost all the countries of the world and is spreading across all the continents rapidly. India is also one of the country affected and had gone into a nationwide lockdown from last week of March 2020. Now, some Institutes are slowly opening albeit with all the precautions that have to be taken in view of the pandemic. There are guidelines which are issued by various Government agencies aimed to reduce the spread of infection.

We at Bharati Vidyapeeth (Deemed to be University) Dental College and Hospital, Pune are strictly following these guidelines and have incorporated activities to ensure that these guidelines are followed to the fullest and also ensuring the safety of all the stakeholders in the Institute viz the students, the staff and the patients. Some of the actions taken are as follows:
