Asked to vacate homes, working with shortages, risking lives, they say "we will kill the virus"

  • katma 24 Mar 2020
  • At the all India medical institute, the youngest soldiers at the front line of the virus war talk to Barkha Dutt about their challenges and difficulties. Young Doctors have had to face prejudice across India, even at AIIMS one young doctor was forced to vacate her rented premises. Here Pawan, Ambika, Chandan and Amandeep speak about whats going through their hearts and minds, the struggle for public transport, the hurt they feel at the prejudice and ignorance and their determination to "kill the virus"

    Barkha you and your channel is really doing too good to report from zero ground. This is how journalists should report. We need journalist like you and your channel who shows the report from public, who voices the common people's concern. Thank you for your report.

    Amandeep , I am a safety professional - typically for selecting PPE we do a exposure risk analysis.. just an idea , not sure if you have thought through that angle. Kudos and salute to you bravehearts !! i am sure this experience shall make you more matured professional

      Depending on the local atmospheric conditions, sars-cov-2 can remain airborne for 2 to 3 hours if an infected person sneezes in that environment. The reason behind most people tested negative in the initial stage is because of the fact that in initial stages, virus hasn't multiplied a lot in the body and test can not tell concentration of virus below a certain number. It has been found in China that some patients even after recovering are getting infected again. So test has its own sensitivity. Mask is required because nobody really know how many people around the world are in initial stage of infection.

    • Ashish Sehrawat
      Ashish Sehrawat Yıl önce latest on sars cov 2. Maybe AEC2 receptors could be important in decoding the attack mechanism of sars cov 2. Researchers may develop vaccine in some months.

      @Dharini Parthasarathy the virus is not airborne.. they said it during the video, But you haven't seen it yet.. also, they are doctors, i don't think they have that luxury to discuss cases standing 3 feet away.. that's why they're being called Angels..

      @Daau I believe govt. Must provide them, different isolated homes. Or govt. Quarters which they are not given earlier. Also if the govt. Provides the doctors enough safety and hygienic medical kit, doctors have lesser chance of getting infected.

      @Harish RR India kept on exporting PPE kits till 19 march. That''s why there is shortage not because of we don't have manufacturing capability. India halted it on 19 march only. Who was benefiting by this? That is the bigger question here. Despite being known for over 2 months, is it the preparation of the govt? And then come people like you who come out to defend the indefensible and dont research.

      @elara 24 You do know that you cannot magically materialize PPE out of thin air right? Also, bear in mind, many countries around the world banned exporting medical PPEs as of now so you cannot even buy from them. Government needs time to manufacture enough PPEs. What do you expect these doctors to do until then? Give up their jobs and let people die?

      @Artin shar that's how medical colleges or tertiary health care centers work.... residents usually take care of the patients....doens't mean they do a bad job every decision comes from the senior doctor... residents are here to take care of the patient..... because one senior doctor can't take care of all the patient....and only emergencies should work so yeah they have closed their opds...I don't think anyone went underground.
