Treatment of General Patients

Patients with other diseases are at extreme risk of contracting COVID-19 infection. Several hospitals and clinics are partially or completely locked down due to corona infection. Many doctors and related health workers are refraining from providing medical services due to being infected. On the other hand, most of the private hospitals in the country have stopped providing regular medical services at such a critical time. As a result, many patients, including children and the elderly, are deprived of proper medical care. The various immunization programs for children are also quite fragile. Our doctors, nurses and other health workers are serving the affected patients along with corona tests due to various limitations. Their tireless sincerity is key to ensuring that the death toll is not yet alarming. But due to the excessive pressure and fear of the corona, the medical work of the general patients in the concerned medical centers is severely hampered. Many ordinary patients are not able to be admitted even after visiting hospitals and clinics one after another. The condition of pregnant women, sick children and the elderly suffering from various diseases due to age is very deplorable. In this situation, many people are taking medicine only with the help of mobile phone or internet with the advice of doctors or the medicine given by the people in the pharmacy. There is a possibility of various harms to the patients. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Therefore, it is very important to take steps to ensure that patients with diseases other than corona receive the medical care they deserve. In this regard, I am expecting timely steps from the concerned parties of the government as well as the private hospitals and clinics of the country.
