It’s the end of may already and the summer hear is at peak. Especially the last couple of days have been tough.
Rise in heat along with the number of positive coronavirus cases is making a double trouble for us already fatigued doctors.
It seems that the Indian government has finally given up on the idea of containment and lock down. They have set lose the havoc of so called migrant people ! 😢 Nowhere in the world you get to see this kind of mess.
We are the only miserable country in the world where quantity is more important than quality and undeserving people become the leaders.
We are such an unfortunate bunch of people where infighting and pulling each other’s legs is more important than working for the common good.
Out biggest problem is THE large and useless population ! Period. We the doctors are nothing but a tiny butterfly standing in the way of the colossal sandstorm. And I am not saying these because I am depressed. Just starting the facts because things have moved way past depression in past four months , working away from our families.
Working in our OPD with just a surgical mask and a surgical latex gloves. Stocks of sanitisers have also ended and God knows when will it be restocked ? Not being provided PPE for attending OPD. Thus decided not to continue general OPD. Instead, providing only emergency services.
Now, the destination looks far and the situation is miserable, just getting through one day at a time.
It’s almost 2 months of lockdown now and it finally feels like enough is enough. Life as we know it , has come to a stand still , but not for us , the health care professionals. In fact , it has made our life much more miserable.
The importance of all the unappreciated things like public transport , tours and travel , malls and even a regular disease OPD are being felt now.
As of this moment , things my get stable , but will not end soon. May take at least 2 more months.
Let’s hope we all get a vaccine and coronavirus herd immunity soon. In the meantime follow all the safety protocols explained. Boost your immunity , wear protective masks , wash exposed body parts. Keep children and elder safe.
