Right move to reduce caseload
The Centre’s decision to allow MBBS students, BSc, and GNM-qualified nurses for COVID duties is a step in the right direction. The Prime Minister Office has stated that medical and nursing students can be utilised for providing services like teleconsultation and monitoring of mild COVID 19 cases after due orientation under the faculty supervision.
The medical personnel completing one hundred days of COVID duties will be given priority in forthcoming regular government recruitments as well as financial assistance. Hope that the decision will reduce the caseload on the existing doctors and nurses who are treating COVID patients.
