Hyderabad, June 7: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) secretary Bandulal accused Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao of playing with the lives of doctors, nurse, medical staff, police personnel and other frontline warriors in the battle against the Corona pandemic covid 19
Speaking to tsit bureau on Saturday, he said that doctors and medical staff getting infected with Covid-19 was a serious issue. While the lives of doctors and medical staff were more precious, it also multiplies the threat of spread of Covid-19 among the other medical personnel and the patients being treated by them. Stating that about several PG doctors have been tested positive till now and the NIMS hospital close a block because of the spread of virus, he said these developments expose the negligence of the State Government.
Bandulal said that the High Court has reprimanded the State Government over doctors getting infected with Covid-19. He said that the advocate who filed the case alleged that government has not supplied protective equipment to doctors. Measures were taken then how these doctors and other medical staff got infected?” he asked.
The Congress leader said that many doctors have alleged that the protocols issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) WHO were not followed. Even the doctors who got infected were allegedly not sent to quarantine. “The State Government should take steps to protect the doctors and front line warriors.
Their entire quarantine and treatment period should be treated as paid leave, he demanded.
