COVID 19 scare- From applause to eviction for doctors

Mar 27, 05:45 AM
COVID-19 scare has taken us all a ride from a unified applaud all through the country for the doctors to tenants, doctors and aircrew being asked to stay away to even violence against fellow folks who don’t comply. Resident Doctor’s Association (RDA) in AIIMS New Delhi had to write to the Union Minister, as doctors were being asked by the neighbours and house owners to vacate, fearing that they would be a carrier of COVID-19. The Delhi Government has ordered penal action against such actions of house owners. In this episode, Dr Adarsh Pratap Singh, president of RDA shares with us how the fear and stigma affects them and their patients and Salma, another doctor who had to return to her home town due to pressure from neighbours during home-quarantine.
