Srinagar, March 31: As the Covid-19 cases show spurt in positive cases, policemen deployed on strengthen on roads to enforce the lockdown, doctors, para-medics and casual labours continue to risk their lives by serving to the people in one or the other way.
Amid stringent curbs across Kashmir, police man played a vital role by remaining deployed at strength ensuring that lockdown is enforced strictly. At many places, policemen were seen persuading the people travelling in vehicles, boys playing cricket and those busy on gossip lounges. “We are handling people in a friendly manner and wherever strict action is required, we resort to that as well we have directions to enforce strict lockdown to break the chain,” a police officer, at busy Residency Road, Srinagar told this KINS reporter.
Similarly, doctors and paramedics, who are directly in contact with the patients with flu and Covid-19 infections admitted in various hospitals, are at high risk of transmitting the disease as they have no personal protection equipment like gowns, N-95 masks, shoe covers, etcs. “Barring a few hosptials in Srinagar, doctors at rest of the hospitals across Kashmir are putting their lives on the line by treating patients with Covid-19 infections without proper protective gear,” said a doctor, who is serving at a peripheral hospital in Kashmir.
Similarly, casual labourers, like safai karamcharis and others too are risking their lives to remaining present on their duties despite knowing the fact how bigger risk they are taken. (KINS)
