‘We Doctors’ campaign to make doctors help their community
We Doctors' campaign started with 7,000 doctors to help patients across India who have tested COVID-19 disease.
When the world is busy fighting COVID-19, the frontline warriors, the doctors, have come forward to help others fight the pandemic in a more effective way.
As per The Times of India report, a campaign has been started by a Mumbai based radiologist to make doctors help each other with PPE kits and other safety equipment needed for healthcare workers in their fight against the deadly coronavirus disease.
“Every doctor deserves safety from COVID-19, while working, whether it is a private, government or general practitioner. We see there are many casualties among doctors. It is necessary to provide them with proper safety precautions,” Dr Dube was quoted by The Times of India as saying.
The campaign was started with 7,000 doctors to help patients across India who have tested more than 1,50,000 COVID-19 patients so far.
Owing to the lack of safety equipment like PPE kits, doctors are unable to help patients. So, ‘We Doctors’ campaign provides these doctors with essential safety kits such as PPE kits, sanitizers and other safety gadgets. The campaign aims to avoid the COVID-19 casualties among doctors.
