Corona warriors! KSOU acknowledges doctors’ role in fighting pandemic

2 min read

Mysuru: While we hear about the measures taken to contain the Covid-19, we never actually get to know how the doctors who work closely with the affected patients are doing.

These doctors not only go through the physical strain but also put up a brave front to ensure the patient heals soon.

“It’s not easy to work 12 hours wearing Personal Protection Equipment (PPE). Yet, it’s a part of our job to ensure our and others’ safety. This has immensely helped in bringing down the Covid-19 affected numbers from 90 to just four active cases,” said Dr Amritha.

Dr Amritha was one of the frontline warriors at the Covid hospital in Mysuru. “Initially, we have to work for 12 hours wearing the PPE. Later, it brings down to six hours. It involves great risk, but it’s a part of our job. But we are glad at the results now,” she added.

She further said that she last went home in February. Ever since the Covid pandemic broke down, she has not visited her parents. “We were in 14-days quarantine. Hence, there was no chance of visiting our family members. Her family members also worry as it’s something that they have never experienced. But their prayers kept us through this ordeal,” she said.

She appreciated every individual for their contribution in fighting the Corona virus’ spread. Even kids are not going out. Their contribution too has had an impact in containing the virus, she said.

She appealed to the people to stay home to fight the virus as the war with the virus is still not over. 

Mysuru Medical College and Research Institute Dean and director Dr CP Nanjaraj said that they adhered to all the instructions issued by the district administration.

“We requested Karnataka State open University Vice Chancellor Dr Vidyashankar to provide guest house for quarantining Corona warriors. We thank them for their support,” he said

KSOU VC Vidyashankar said earlier we were not much concerned about the doctors. The Corona Virus has made us understand how our doctors are important. Their duty is highly appreciable. Some people said that Guest houses will become ghost house. I didn’t bother. We provided our guest house. We will assure the doctors that they can use our space for Covid 19 care anytime, Dr Vidyashankar added.
