If timely intervention is not done, symptoms can develop such as redness of eyes, drooping of eyelids, watering of eyes, double vision and in some cases, loss of vision. Facial nerve paralysis has also been observed.Stressing on measures to prevent the disease it was stated that early diagnosis and intervention is the need of the hour. People should ensure personal hygiene, wearing face masks and face shields to keep infections at bay.Mr. Anil Vinayak, Group COO Fortis Healthcare Ltd, Ashish Bhatia, Regional COO, Fortis Healthcare Ltd; and Abhijit Singh, Zonal Director, Fortis Hospital, Mohali and senior clinicians were present on the occasion.Pertinently, as many as 20 referral patients from NCR, Haryana and parts of Punjab have reported at the OPD or Emergency at Fortis, Mohali.
