Hyderabad: Nearly 150 healthcare professionals from city tertiary teaching hospitals including Osmania General Hospital and Gandhi Hospital have tested Covid-19 positive and are in isolation.

The healthcare professionals who tested Covid positive included doctors, house surgeons, resident doctors and MBBS students. Despite higher positivity, so far none of the healthcare workers have been hospitalised, officials said.
