Although, they’re yet to receive the compensation of INR 1 cr declared by this Delhi(DL) govt,” Krishnan informed the Congress MP from Kerala(KL)’s Wayanad.

We’ve 1.two mln lodged allopathic doctors in India(In). We’ve about 3.Seven mln lodged nurses in India(In). When we’re coming to the ratio, it’s 1:1500 for doctors & 1.7:1000 nurses in India(In). The WHO suggested ratio is 1:1000 doctors & 3:1000 nurses when coming to the recommendations of the WHO.

Private nurses are informing that their own salaries are being cut. Just how going to they care for their own families during the epidemic? In such a status, I think the govt should support them & pay their own overall salaries.”

I need to notify you regarding some of the data. On May 27, the infection rate in Delhi(DL) has been 13.Seven percent we have been doing 7,000 tests per day.

Slamming the govt, Rahul Gandhi stated, “I think a little bit is that the govts are trying to manage the perception, they’re trying to give a sense that the issue is not as bad as it’s.

“However I believe that we’ve to face the issue, so we must accept the issue, define the issue accurately & afterwards combat issue. I don’t really know just how you react to that,” he stated. To this the AIIMS employee stated, “You’re absolutely correct. We’ve a epidemic status & AIIMS Director (Randeep Guleria) has stated that we’ll peak in Jun-mid Jul.

“Even the Delhi(DL) CM Arvind Kejriwal has said that they’re expecting 5.Five lakh instances. We’re having 10,000 berths in Delhi(DL). Could you imagine the depth of the status where 5.Five lakh citizens are coming, of course they won’t come simultaneously, however average 1 lakh sufferers a day. I could’t imagine the depth of the status. What going to he accomplish?” Krishnan questioned.
