Panaji:  Indian Medical Association’s Goa unit on Wednesday announced that they are withdrawing their programme of providing consultation to the COVID-19 patients, adviced Home Isolation by the state authorities.

The programme was launched a month back by IMA in association with State Health Department in which the members of the association from across Goa were providing teleconsultation to the patients, who were allowed Home Isolation after testing positive for the infection.

IMA Goa Unit President Dr Samuel Arawattigi said that the association is withdrawing its programme as government medical officers have already taken up the task of providing consultation to the Home Isolated patients, and giving them the medical kit required during the isolation period.

As per IMA statistics, total 6,770 patients were provided teleconsultation as a part of the program which was launched on August 10 when State government began allowing Home Isolation of asymptomatic COVID-19 positive patients. Total 150 doctors affiliated to IMA were part of the programme.

“ The letters of appreciation from patients who have availed this gratuitous arrangement and benefited from advice encouragement and assistance during their tenure of home isolation is a testimony of the dedicated service IMA physicians along with doctors from Indian Dental Association and Homeopathic association of Goa have provided over the past fifty days,” he said.

“IMA Goa State would like to acknowledge that  Government along with its Health care Workers have put into place a system for management and handling of COVID-19 asymptomatic positive Home Isolation cases and IMA Goa state would like to announce its withdrawal from this arrangement as this development is leading to duplication of work,” he said.

Samuel said  that  as part of larger social responsibility in case any Health Officer requires our services the same maybe coordinated with him.
