Selflessness is what personifies the doctors. Reaching an even number of 30,000 doctors, including retired government and Armed Forces Medical Services, and private physicians have volunteered to help the government fight against COVID-19 pandemic, a senior government official said on Friday.
The government on March 25 had appealed to retired government, Armed Forces Medical Services, public sector undertaking or private doctors to come forward and join the efforts to fight the pandemic caused by the deadly novel coronavirus.
With the passing weeks, the death toll increased to 56 and so did the COVID – 19 cases rose to 2,301 on Friday. The information is passed on straight from the Union Health Ministry.
Besides the PM CARES FUND, the government did call out for volunteers who wish to serve the country and contribute to this noble mission, were welcomed to register on Niti Aayog’s official website.
Valueleaf Group of Companies calls out and cheers for these frontline warriors during the darkest hour in the world. Cheers to the souls who are serving their sweat out to the nation endlessly and those out there facing deaths, many cases.
We extend our warmest gratitude to all the doctors globally for standing up to the crisis day in, sleepless nights, for tireless support and never-ending days of treatment.
Their only armour is their protective health gear (suits and helmets, masks and goggles). Shortage of these can risk them to the fire and we, us the people are losing the very big line of treatment. Our doctors are our primary armours besides the preventive measures we take every day against Coronavirus.
Shortages of protective health gear in India are forcing some doctors to use raincoats and motorbike helmets while fighting the coronavirus, exposing the weak state of the public health system ahead of an anticipated surge in COVID-19 cases.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government on Monday said India was trying to procure bulk quantities of such gear, called personal protective equipment (PPE), domestically and from South Korea and China to meet the shortages.
But more than a dozen doctors on the front lines of treating the novel coronavirus, which has so far infected 1,251 people in India and killed 32, told Reuters they were concerned that without proper masks and coveralls, they could become carriers.
Thank you for putting up the bravest hearts during global distress, a pandemic that has evoked the mankind to its knees.
