Medical interns and final-year MBBS students can be deployed in the fight against the novel coronavirus, the center said, as it announced a series of measures to increase the availability of human resources.

They are:

~ NEET-PG Exam to be postponed for at least 4 months

~ Medical personnel completing 100 days of Covid duties will be given priority in forthcoming regular Government recruitments

~ Medical Interns to be deployed in Covid Management duties under the supervision of their faculty

~ Final Year MBBS students can be utilized for tele-consultation and monitoring of mild Covid cases under supervision of Faculty

~ B.Sc./GNM Qualified Nurses to be utilized in full-time Covid nursing duties under the supervision of Senior Doctors and Nurses

~ Medical personnel completing 100 days of Covid duties will be given Prime Minister’s Distinguished Covid National Service Samman

These decisions come as India faces a devastating new wave of coronavirus infections - one which has left an already-battered healthcare system on its knees. Hospital beds are in short supply, as are medicines and oxygen supplies. And doctors and nurses, who've been fighting the virus for over a year now, have been left overworked and traumatised.

The tsunami of new Covid cases appears never-ending; this morning India reported over 3.68 new cases and more than 3,400 deaths in the previous 24 hours. The centre has been heavily criticised for failing to anticipate and plan for the second Covid wave, with political parties left free to hold rallies and roadshows - attended by tens of thousands in violation of Covid safety protocols - ahead of the elections in Bengal and four other states.

Some experts have also pointed to mass gatherings at religious events, like the mega Kumbh in Haridwar, and general laxity in following Covid norms, as reasons for the frightening spike in cases.

Even with 14 days covid duty followed by 7 days quarantine, It will take more than 5 months to complete 100 days from now. Looks like no one' s gonna reach that by the end of pandemic. Well planned....:) First they discarded the insurance policy for docs and now this....
