New Delhi: The server facilities at the main building of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here resumed partially on Tuesday, two weeks after being hit by a ransomware attack.

An official said that some online and offline registrations, both new and follow-up, were made at the new Rajkumari Amrita Kaur (RAK) OPD on Tuesday. However, the facilities have not been made fully operational yet and it will take some more days to return to completely online registration, said the official, adding that all the computers have been scanned and antivirus has been uploaded for safety.
