"We have shut four Bengaluru clinics for not reporting ILI and SARI cases," a health official told IANS.
The clinics are Namma Clinic at Sahakaranagar, Panchamukhi Specialty Clinic at Peenya 2nd Stage, Mathru Chaya Clinic at Sudhama Nagar in Bommanahalli and Nayak Hospital in Gayathri Nagar.
"We gave notice to 17 clinics for not reporting ILI and SARI medical conditions in patients. Out of the 17, 13 reverted that they did not do and will start reporting," said the official.
However, the four named clinics did not revert leading to their shutdown.
According to the official, the clinics failed to adhere to the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1987, Disaster Management Act, 2005 and others.
All medical facilities and hospitals should report all patients with ILI and SARI symptoms as many Covid positive cases have them as underlying conditions.
