Delhi: 42-year-old contractual doctor, on duty since March succumbs to COVID
Delhi: In an unfortunate incident, a 42-year-old COVID warrior working in Delhi succumbed to the coronavirus disease recently. The deceased has been identified as Dr Javed Ali who contracted COVID in June while performing his duties in a coronavirus facility. He was fighting it for the last month until he breathed his last at 8:40 a.m. on Monday at AIIMS trauma centre.
With this, the contractual doctors are now questioning the government about the responsibility for the death of COVID warriors who are serving government facilities on contract basis and are having no commitment from the government on financial assistance to their families.
Many of the doctors are taking the help of social media platforms to express the grievances of contractual workers while expressing condolences for the deceased.
Mr @ArvindKejriwal a corona warrior Dr Javed Ali died of Corona yesterday? Did U announce any financial assistance to his helpless family? Did U meet his widow? Even U didn't support him when he was on ventilator for 10 days. I know why. @LtGovDelhi @PMOIndia @SatyendarJain— Wadood Sajid (@Wadoodsajid) July 21, 2020
