 Sub: For information to the medical practitioners as not to deny the      

       treatment for non-COVID patients, who have other health problems.


It is brought to the notice of the Karnataka Medical Council through Media Reports that in view of COVID-19 pandemic, some of the Medical practitioners and Private hospitals are denying to provide the treatment to the non-COVID patients, who have other health problems other than COVID-19, causing much inconvenience to such patients and it is also brought to our notice that some of the hospitals/clinics are closed out of fear of contacting COVID-19.


Hence, all the medical practitioners registered under our Council are directed not to close the hospitals/clinics and further they are directed to examine the patients of non-COVID-19, who are suffering from other health problems, by following the professional Ethics and to render necessary treatment to such patients.


It is further notified that if any medical practitioner fails to render his service to non-COVID patients, the K.M.C. will have to invoke section 2.1 and 5.2 of Code of Medical Ethics, 2002 and such practitioner is liable for penal action. 


Karnataka Medical Council,


 For Helpline:



If any medical practitioner or any private hospital refuses to render their services to the non-COVID patients, who have other health problems, such patients are requested to call the helpline given hereunder.
