New Delhi, December 1: As the AIIMS server remains down for the ninth day, the Delhi Police Special Cell has launched an investigation into the alleged cyberattack.

According to sources, AIIMS Delhi services will begin in the middle of next week; in the meantime, approximately 3,000 computers have been scanned, and antivirus software has been uploaded for future safety. The team at the computer facility meets on a regular basis.
