As all of us know we are facing a public health emergency COVID 19. Our doctors and other healthcare workers are the frontliners who are fighting the SAARS-COV-2 virus with their skills.
The disease is very contagious as well as fatal and so our doctors need all kind of protections so that they can treat more and more patients without themselves getting infected.
Unfortunately, the doctors in our country, mainly in govt hospitals are lacking these personal protective measures because of various issues.
This is not the time to discuss and resolve these various administrative and budget related issues.
The time is to think what we can do for these brave doctors. Clappings and beating plates are not enough. They need personal protective kits to protect themselves so that they can protect us all.
Our doctors are already overburdened. If they get infected then it will be a horrendous scenario for all of us.
We are Resident Doctors Association of Jawaharlal nehru medical college, Aligarh. We are committed to provide all necessary things to our Resident doctors and other high risk health care workers.
We appeal you all to donate some money from your saving so that your doctors can have a protective kit comprising of gowns, shoe covers, gloves, specs, N95 masks, hair caps etc. Please remember that if they are safe then they can treat more number of patients. If the kit is not provided to them, they will continue their services but after a point of time they will get infected and then either they will fall ill or they will spread infection to other doctors and patients.
