Srinagar: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha will honour 50 healthcare workers (Covid warriors) with Certificate of Appreciation on August 15, 2021 (Independence Day).
Announcing this decision, Sinha, in a statement, on Friday maintained that the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir handled the Covid-19 pandemic with great professionalism and used all possible resources to provide care and cure to the patients suffering in both waves.
“With the hard work of our doctors, health workers, and other services, we have ensured better healthcare delivery during the pandemic. I would
like to convey gratitude to them on behalf of the entire Jammu and Kashmir,” the Lt Governor said while sharing his decision to honour Covid warriors.
Sinha said that sufficient measures were taken by the J&K Health & Medical Education department which included increasing the bed capacity, oxygen generation capacity or availability, ensuring supply of drugs and consumables and management of protocols and directions issued by the MOH&FW, Government of India, from time to time. Effective mechanism was also adopted for making vaccination successful for the target groups which helped to contain the infection further, he said.
The Lieutenant Governor, while recognizing the selfless services rendered by the COVID warriors (doctors/paramedics/nurses/nursing orderlies/drivers etc.) in managing the pandemic, said, “The way men and women health care workers have vaccinated people in difficult and snowbound areas by walking 18-20 kms, has set a new benchmark for the entire country.”
“These warriors have put relentless efforts without even caring for their own lives and the lives of their family members and even remained away from their dear ones during this pandemic. With the day and night efforts of these health care warriors, Jammu & Kashmir was successful in keeping the positivity rate of patients and mortality rate within control,” said the Lt Governor.
