"Patients are dying in ICU because there are no nurses and doctors” is going to be the headline news after we address the oxygen shortage.
At officially over 3 lakh cases a day, India is going through some of the worst effects of the second wave of COVID 19 which has not only overwhelmed the general population but also strained the healthcare system and workers beyond human capacities.
Forced to work 16-18 hours a day and many times skip meals, the healthcare workers without whom the system cannot survive are on the verge of a total breakdown, which at this point would wreck unprecedented havoc.
As it is, even at a conservative estimate of 30%, already almost 30,000 out of the total 90,000 overall registered doctors in Delhi are likely to be infected by the virus. The rest also run the risk of not just being infected themselves but also carrying the same back home to ageing parents and families.
Therefore it is not only most urgent but critical to ensure that decent living arrangements are made for the Health Care Workers in close proximity to their workplaces. Also, in order to they don't infect other colleagues and heal faster ensure there is a dedicated quarantine and covid care facilities for health care workers who turn Covid positive.
To this end, the Delhi Government is requested to ensure that adequate number of Hotels with food arrangements are requisitioned in all the Districts of Delhi and dedicatedly allocated to the the Health Care Worker’s deployed in those Districts.
