Goa: After resident Doctors  on Covid duty in South Goa  threatened to withdraw over their accommodation, health minister vishwajit Rane on Saturday said he would take up the issue with chief minister Pramod Sawant. Resident doctors have been told that the government will not provide them hotel accommodation henceforth, but that transport will be arranged to and from Goa Medical College to Covid hospitals, Goa Association Resident Doctors (GARD) said in a letter to the health minister.

We can’t antagonise them when they are putting their lives at risk.”“We are disheartened by the decision and are left with no choice but to return to GMC and retract our services from Covid hospitals,” read the GARD statement issued after the resident doctors were informed about the new arrangement which comes into force from Sunday.
