This is in relation to OP clinics and small Nursing Homes 1) At the entrance sensor operated sanitizer aerosols machine can be kept. Patients who enter need to show their hands in front of the machine, Heat sensors activate sanitizer spray. 2) Infra red Thermometer guns can check patient temperature before entry. 3) Non invasive BP monitor can measure temperature, BP, pulse rate and Oxygen saturation . 4) Medical and paramedical personnel should wear minimum N95 masks, surgical cap, face shield, ,gloves, and overall. 5) Keeping patient at 6 feet distance ,history can be recorded by a trained staff . 6) Patient- alone -Consulting room .No relatives are allowed. 7) Telemedicine can be practiced in hospitals also .Doctor ,sitting in his consulting room, should be connected to patient sitting in a separate room, connected by audio and video. In most cases correct diagnosis can be arrived. 8) In counters in front office, a retractable board can be created . This can be pushed out to patient for dropping prescription, then retracted and prescription taken by the paramedic in the counter. Same way medicine can be kept in the board and pushed out to the patient, standing 1 meter away from counter. So on and so forth !!

Thank you, Esteemed Friends
