Finally, Goa govt authorities have got off their high horses! I have been constantly asking the govt to convert South Goa District Hospital as COVID-19 hospital since several weeks through my press, blogs and social media. And thankfully now, Goa CM seems to have followed my suggestion – South Goa District Hospital is now converted into COVID-19 hospital to meet the increasing demand of beds for covid patients.
The Next step:
I strongly demand that the new GMC block into COVID-19 hospital immediately, freeing up GMC facilities for patients with other ailments. Currently, 30% plus facilities of GMC is being used for COVID-19 patients, depriving patients for treatment of other diseases.
- This will also add up space & resources for #COVIDWarrior doctors who are catching infection while treating patients.
- The new GMC block must be fully dedicated to tackle coronavirus cases specifically from *North Goa*. If needed, the entire block can be handed over to Army Medical Corps to help with treatment for coronavirus patients. This will also give a breathing break for our overworked doctors who are really working hard.
- Coronavirus cases in Goa are skyrocketing & we need our medical infrastructure to be fully prepared to tackle the menace & give respectable treatment to every Goan.
Thousands of Goans have already suffered because of poor medical infrastructure & lack of treatment. Goa CM and his government must act before it’s too late!
