Mr. Chocko Valliappa, MD of The Sona Group, writes an article on the topic, “There is need to be empathetic, compassionate and have a uniform policy while enforcing Covid-19 protocols,” which is published on India Bloom online page.
In the article, he discusses the need for empathetic and uniform government protocols all over India.
He writes, “There is an urgent need for a government or civic body mandate to offer isolation facilities in hotels with three price bands: budget-priced, medium-priced, and top end. Today people who don’t want to be confined to a hospital are caught in a bind as they cannot go back home either.” People are indirectly forced to stay at hospitals though they have mild infections. When they are not convenient in staying at hospitals, they tend to spread the infection during their travel, going back to their place.
Also, each airport asks for a different format of covid-19 negative certificates, which is inconvenient and not possible for the elderly, who are new to technology. The government should bring a uniform protocol and make it easier for travelers, he writes.
