Srinagar : Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) today in a statement said that timely and effective measures taken by JK administration against 2nd wave of Covid-19 Pandemic has saved a huge number of human lives.
President DAK Dr Md Yousuf Tak said that the holistic approach adopted by the LG Led government in upgrading health infrastructure, decentralising health care services, and installing oxygen plants in rural hospitals have proved a game changer in JK.
Dr Tak appealed people who are eligible for vaccination to go for it as soon as possible, sooner the better. The only way to get rid from this devastating pandemic and to resume pre-covid normal life is mass vaccination, which has been proven very effective across the globe in decreasing the number of cases and covid fatalities.
General Secretary DAK, Dr Owais H Dar said that the cooperation and sense of responsibility shown by people is praiseworthy in mitigating the pandemic. People in general have fully cooperated with the administration and have sacrificed a lot to save humanity. But we must not lower our guard and must still follow Covid Appropriate Behaviour in Letter and spirit till this CoronaVirus Vanishes from our community.
The health and Medical Education department of Union Territory of JK has delivered very effectively and succeeding in managing both covid and non covid emergencies with out chaos and confusion and it is also the time to appreciate the front line health care workers who have managed multiple dimensions of pandemic by adopting multidisciplinary holistic approach in dealing with case load.
