SDSJK aghast against Govt for not providing accommodation to medicos fighting COVID crisis

Rajouri, Apr 21 (KNO): Society of Dental Surgeons Jammu and Kashmir (SDSJK) on Tuesday slammed what they called as insensitive approach shown by administrators towards all the oral health specialists, who are working as frontline warriors in tackling COVID-19 crisis.

Dr Imtyaz Banday, President SDSJK in a statement issued to news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), said, “At various health institutes, our colleagues in these hours of difficult situation, after undergoing training as per COVID guidelines have been performing duties in sample collection, screening, Quarantine, Surveillance Teams and  backend. But, unfortunately the administrators have turned deaf ear to the request of all dental surgeons who along with other medical officers are working at frontline thereby risking their lives and that of their families.”

Dr Adil Wani, Spokesperson SDSJK said that “we are aghast about the incompetency of authorities and administrators for not providing proper official accommodation to such frontline workers who after in touch with Covid positive / suspects are told to go home.”

Dr Bilal Beigh Publicity Secretary said that it is utter shameful on part of authorities to act like mute wherein the poor dental surgeon becomes helpless & a source of infection & threat for their families especially the elderly.

Dental Surgeons being Oral Health Specialists are playing an important role in tackling COVID crisis, but the callous and inefficient behavior shown by the authorities has led the medicos in a state of fix.

SDSJK stressed the higher authorities to intervene in this grave burning issue and resolve it at the earliest or else there is no other way but to opt out till COVID SOPs issued by Government of India regarding accommodation of health care workers are not being implemented in letter and spirit –(KNO)
