     With the huge rise in covid cases and deaths in Goa recently, many issues are coming forward which needs to be highlighted to the people in charge of making decisions at the highest level. 

     We are putting a joint request to look into this matter as it involves the lives of health care workers who work day and night trying to fight the pandemic.

     We have young Resident Doctors of Goa Medical College, facing multiple issues while working in the government hospital. They continue to work despite the lack of good quality infrastructure and high flow oxygen cylinders and they face a huge issue of getting replacements in the middle of the night. Sometimes, patients are kept waiting until replacements arrive. There is a severe shortage of beds, and critical patients are left on trolley, floors. Those on ventilators in critical condition in the ICU are not assured of continuous oxygen supply.  They find themselves helpless in such a situation which leads to frustrated and annoyed patients who vent their anger on doctors. The resident doctors are not given any protection and suffer tremendous pressure from the patients to provide them adequate medical help. While at the same time they are given orders to maintain VIP culture on a preferential basis. The critical patients are left to struggle in front of their eyes.

  We are repeatedly assured that infrastructure will be ramped up for the past year, but we don't see much happening. Where are the health personnel to manage these facilities as and when they materialise? Are we going to see the same, overworked juniors being redeployed?

Why are the doctors in the Private sector and those who have retired not been involved in the decision-making process?

 Even more shocking is the manner in which sudden orders are brought out by the Director of health services forcing Private Consultants to work in inadequate and dilapidated health facilities without any discussion. Can good health service be provided under duress?

   We demand from the authorities to look into this matter to improve the infrastructure of the hospitals, provide better security for the resident doctors who work hard to save lives.

   The rising death rates are a pointer towards a challenge that requires quick and effective planning and deployment of health services.

   We hereby implore every authority to rise to this occasion by herewith signing this petition.
