Medical fraternity: God’s angels guarding humanity, saving lives in testing times

“I am endeavoring to see God through the service of humanity; for I know that God is neither in heaven, nor down below, but in everyone.” – Mahatma Gandhi

The notorious Covid-19 pandemic has once again opened its fangs to attack, this time, silently slithering when no one saw it coming to claim lives. However, even in desperate times like these, the Indian medical fraternity is working relentlessly for saving lives, keeping their service to the nation and to humanity, above themselves.

The spine of the country’s medical infrastructure:

The medical staff is hailed as the spine of any medical infrastructure and their role in times of an ongoing epidemic of the Covid-19 has become all the more imperative. They are at the forefront in the grueling fight against Covid, taking care of millions of Covid-19 patients for months, putting their own lives at stake.

Let us know how the entire medical fraternity swung into action when the country needed them the most:

Young medical interns step up to reduce the workload of existing doctors:

PM Narendra Modi reviewed the growing need for adequate human resources for responding to the Covid-19 pandemic in the country last week. And as part of efforts to augment the increasing demand, decided to allow the deployment of Medical Interns in Covid Management duties under the supervision of their faculty.

The services of the Final Year MBBS students can be utilized for providing services like teleconsultation and monitoring of mild Covid cases after their due orientation under the supervision of the Faculty. These young medical interns are covid warriors who are stepping up to reduce the workload on doctors currently engaged in Covid duty.

Veterans come forward, to the nation’s rescue:

In view of the surge in Covid-19 cases and increased demand for doctors in the country, the defence veterans are stepping up to help the nation.

  • Nursing Officers of Military Nursing Service (MNS) at the forefront in the fight against 2nd wave of Covid-19:

Close to 300 MNS officers are deployed at various Armed Forces hospitals to provide medical care to the Covid-19 patients at Delhi, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Varanasi & Patna.

They are playing a vital role in various repatriation missions as part of Operation Namaste & Operation Samudra Setu. They are serving people in far-flung areas like Leh, Rajouri, Doda, Kargil among many others.

  • 400 ex-AMC/SSC medical officers get back on duty to extend support to the nation in these difficult times:

The ex-medical officers will be recruited on a contract basis for a maximum period of 11 months.

The Armed Forces Medical Services (AFMS) has already deployed additional doctors, including specialists, super specialists, and paramedics, at various hospitals. Short Service Commissioned doctors of AFMS have been granted an extension till 31st December 2021.

e-Sanjeevani OPD:

In addition, ex-defence doctors will provide an online consultation service on e-Sanjeevani OPD for all citizens of India. e-Sanjeevani OPD is a Government of India flagship telemedicine platform. It is developed by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC). The platform will provide free consultations to all Indian citizens.

There has been a good response from the retired defence doctors and more are expected to join soon. Further, a separate nationwide Ex defence doctors OPD is envisaged. Experience & expertise of Ex defence doctors will help citizens to obtain consultation from their homes & curb the crisis.
