The second wave in Delhi was disastrous for Doctors as the maximum number of doctors died in the City


Delhi saw the maximum number of cases of doctors' death during the second wave of Covid. This is the official note of IMA. 128 doctors lost their lives in Delhi during the pandemic which is more than Bihar, 115 and Uttarpradesh, 79 deaths.

798 doctors died during second wave of COVID-19 across country; maximum lost their lives in Delhi:

States like Maharashtra and Kerala where the prevalence of the Delta Plus variant of COVID-19 is on a rise also reported deaths of doctors in double digits. Maharashtra reported 23 doctor deaths and Kerala reported 24 deaths.

Pondicherry reported the lowest deaths of doctors by logging one death only.

IMA President Dr JA Jayalal said that the PM has assured that doctors will be respected, protected, and safeguarded but the deaths of the doctors' across the country are giving a different picture.

The first National Doctor's day was celebrated in the country in July 1991. This year also PM Narendra Modi in his Mann ki Baat program asked the people to celebrate Doctors' day on 1st July. PM has on several occasions praised the role of doctors in the fight against this pandemic but the ground realities are different. The doctors' are dying and people attacked and fought with doctors' at many places.

We all know that we can not win this war against Corona if our doctors' are not feeling confident and given a conducive environment to work. Some people unnecessarily create pressure on them for small things.

The vaccination drive is at a very critical juncture and if we derail it, there is every possibility that we will lose the war against covid. For us to win this war we must respect, protect and safeguard our doctors.

Meanwhile, India on Tuesday reported 37,566 fresh COVID-19 cases, the first time in 102 days that daily cases dropped below the 40,000 mark, the Union Health Ministry informed.
