Leave for dental postgraduate students by dental institutes amidst coronavirus outbreak

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!

Respected sir/Ma'am
I am a post graduate MDS student and would like to bring this to your esteemed concern that we,dental  Post graduate students are instructed to keep working by our respective dental colleges/institutions in the wake of coronavirus outbreak, although the institutes have granted leave to Undergraduate dental students.

Since most of the  dental services are not essential to life and have no emergency procedures, it would not be wrong if we are allowed to self quarantine or protect ourselves.

Inspite of the notice of the State Government my Institution has not permitted us any leave and we are still working without any precautionary measures being provided by our college. As dental professionals, we are in utmost  close contact with the patient, saliva, pus, blood and aerosoles, and most vulnerable to spread of infections.

We and our families are scared. Kindly look into the matter and please take necessary steps as needed in present grave situation.
Thanking you
