While the whole nation is on a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic, the doctors, healthcare workers and medical staff who are described as the incarnations of God by the country’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi are proving to be heroes by risking their lives with an aim to immobilize the spread of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
But when the doctors and healthcare workers are putting their best foot forward, the city is staring at another danger as the coronavirus cases are increasing at alarming rates among frontline healthcare workers and medical staff in Mumbai.
Over 100 healthcare workers are tested positive of COVID-19 which can result in closure of hospitals and out-of-action nurses.
Two nurses test positive at Dadar’s Shushrusha Hospital which has stopped taking any new admissions and directing discharge of all patients within 48 hours.
The civic officials have invited online applications for the recruitment of 114 ward boys to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
Alarmed by spread of the coronavirus among the healthcare workers and medical staff, hospitals have been asked to provide safety kits, personal and protective equipment, additional remuneration and transport. Maharashtra is known as worst affected state in India with over 1700 tested positive as of Sunday with the death toll rising to 149.
