Goa Government Rejects Dr Edwin Gomes’

The state government has shot down a request by Dr Edwin Gomes, nodal officer of the ESI hospital, to relieve him from COVID duty. Gomes, who is also head of department, medicine, Goa Medical College (GMC) and hospital, Bambolim, was appointed to lead the ESI hospital after it was named a dedicated Covid facility.
 

Rane said that Gomes wanted a four-month break, but it wasn’t possible and it was so intimated to him. He said that it is important that doctors at the Covid hospital are given breaks at regular intervals, and thus, three teams of doctors are posted there on rotation. “We told Gomes that he can take a break for a month, but after that, he has to resume duty at the Covid hospital.”

On Saturday, Gomes returned home after almost a hundred days of duty at the hospital, and was given a hero’s welcome by residents of the housing complex he lives in. Gomes had also won plaudits after Goa’s first seven Covid cases were cured and discharged, after which the state was declared a Green Zone. Many patients who were treated and cured also spoke of him in glowing terms.
