On ground zero, police, doctors, para-medics, casual labours risking lives

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.


Srinagar, March 31 (KINS): As the Covid-19 cases show spurt in positive cases, policemen deployed on strengthen on roads to enforce the lockdown, doctors, para-medics and casual labours continue to risk their lives by serving to the people in one or the other way.

Amid stringent curbs across Kashmir, police man played a vital role by remaining deployed at strength ensuring that lockdown is enforced strictly. At many places, policemen were seen persuading the people travelling in vehicles, boys playing cricket and those busy on gossip lounges. “We are handling people in a friendly manner and wherever strict action is required, we resort to that as well we have directions to enforce strict lockdown to break the chain,” a police officer, at busy Residency Road, Srinagar told this KINS reporter.

Similarly, doctors and paramedics, who are directly in contact with the patients with flu and Covid-19 infections admitted in various hospitals, are at high risk of transmitting the disease as they have no personal protection equipment like gowns, N-95 masks, shoe covers, etcs. “Barring a few hosptials in Srinagar, doctors at rest of the hospitals across Kashmir are putting their lives on the line by treating patients with Covid-19 infections without proper protective gear,” said a doctor, who is serving at a peripheral hospital in Kashmir.

Similarly, casual labourers, like safai karamcharis and others too are risking their lives to remaining present on their duties despite knowing the fact how bigger risk they are taken. (KINS)
