GOA: Health minister Vishwajit Rane said that the government has decided to recruit additional 32 doctors who have served their bond period. “They will be posted at the Goa Medical College (GMC) and ESI-Covid hospital, Margao,” Rane told reporters in reply to questions about Covid management in government facilities.
Also, medical students pursuing their post graduation in the GMC as well fourth year nursing students will be posted in peripheries. “Nurses, however, will be given non-Covid duties. Other regular nurses will get some help from student nurses,” he said. Recently, Rane said that they do not have nurses in adequate numbers for intensive care facilities for management of Covid patients. Last month, the GMC introduced three wards for treating high risk Covid-19 patients.
