Urging Prime Minister Narendra Modi to acknowledge the casualties among doctors on the front-line during a coronavirus disease outbreak, the Indian Medical Association on 31 August asked for inclusive national solatium for doctors and their families.

“The data has raised concerns all across the country. IMA’s data for doctors alone has registered 307 deaths as of today and a total of 2,006 infected. 188 of those who died are General Practitioners who are the first point of contact for people,” IMA wrote in its letter.

“All doctors who have laid down their lives in fighting this epidemic should be treated at par with the martyrs of Indian Armed Forces and acknowledged appropriately,” the letter by IMA?stated.

The authorities at IMA have also underlined that doctors suffer a viral load and higher Case Fatality Rate (CFR). It added, the surviving spouse or dependent should be provided with a Government job as per their qualifications.

Note: Original letter addressed to Hon'ble Prime Minister by IMA is attached as pdf.
