NC General Secretary Dr Koirala urges medical workers to perform with high spirit during COVID-19 crisis
Kathmandu - Nepali Congress General Secretary Dr Shashank Koirala has appealed to medical and health workers across the country to work with much confidence in the treatment and containment of cornavirous infection. The leader who is also the medical doctor said humanitarian feeling comes first when any medical worker gets ready to perform one's duties. In his appeal, he said, ''Humanitarian feeling, dedication and courage on the part of medical people will provide a way out to the existing global pandemic.'' Stating that the NC was always with the government in its efforts to fight against the coronavirus, he said the people had extended support for the same by complying with the national lockdown rules.
He, however, expressed his concern over the government's inability to ensure a required quantity of personal protective equipment for health workers and urged the government to address the situation at the earliest so as to boost up the spirits of the people who are on the frontline in the fight against the virus. The doctor sees the need of availability of coronavirus testing facilities in all states to extend the testing coverage, following the World Health Organisation's appeal towards that end. The government has been advised to pick up suspects from their homes and take them to testing centers safely to control the further spread of virus which is transmitted by one human to another and ensure proper treatment for the confirmed cases.
