GUWAHATI, March 30 - As part of the preparation to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, the State government is organising special training for doctors, nurses and other health workers in different parts of the State. Amid such a situation, about 30 BSc nurses were made to wait since Monday morning on the campus of the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH).
A guardian of one of the nurses alleged that the group from Nalbari reached the GMCH campus for a special training on the corona pandemic as per direction of the department. But throughout the day, no official met with them. By evening some officials directed them to return to Nalbari as they could not arrange lodging facilities for the group.
Reacting to the allegation, GMCH Superintendent Dr Ramen Talukdar said, �It is war time for us. We are all working to prevent the pandemic at any cost in the State. So as a health worker, every one of us has to endure some trouble. By bringing the allegation, the person proved that she has no intention to serve the nation in a crisis situation.�
