The doctors, who had assembled for a continuing education program in gynecology, apparently ate snacks from a bakery. The eatables were purchased from Mac Allen Bakery at Padmarao Nagar.

The doctors ate the snacks on Friday, but fell sick on Sunday and only then realized that it was in fact the food, which was an issue.

With many senior doctors sick, Gandhi Hospital is understaffed as far as the gynecology wing is concerned. It may take at least 4 days for the doctors to get back to normalcy, "Till then, it will be difficult to manage the patients as a handful of doctors cannot continue for so long in the absence of several others," a junior doctor commented.
