After reaching 22,333 positive cases, Tamil Nadu’s healthcare workers complaint regarding the poor facilities provided to the medical staff of the state


Tamil Nadu is becoming the centre of coronavirus in India after Maharashtra. Currently, there are 72 Covid-19 testing centres in the state. Out of which 29 are private and 43 are government ruled testing centres. According to an issued government report, 12,049 samples are tested for Covid -19 and overall more than 4.5 lakhs samples are recorded till date. However, considering the rise in positive cases of coronavirus, the healthcare facilities in the state have to pace up to cope with the prevailing crisis. While doctors and nurses are appreciated worldwide for their immense support and hard work, safety and preventive measures are hardly provided to them. The number of medical staff affected by Covid-19 in Tamil Nadu is over 100 now. Repeatedly, it has been reported about the unavailability of PPE kits and N95 masks for medical staff. Doctors and nurses on duty in the Covid-19 wards have been at risk of contracting of virus and still, the lack of healthy food, clean accommodations, proper transport facilities and unavailability of medical equipment continues to sadden medical fraternity. The Tamil Nadu government has proclaimed owning enough PPEs and masks, still, many doctors have come forward to charge these claims as false. But during this health emergency, doctors are the main warriors and their health should be the primary responsibility of the government.
