BENGALURU: As many as 2,000 post-graduate medical doctors will be shortly available to boost the Covid fight across the state, said Medical Education Minister Dr K Sudhakar. At the inauguration of a Covid testing lab and ceremony for post-graduate orientation classes at BGS Global Hospital near Kengeri on Friday, he said the PG medical results will be declared in a couple of days and the medicos will undergo interships. After that, they can boost the Covid fight in the state.
“Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has done extremely well in containing Covid-19. Compared to the US and other western countries, India lacks medical infrastructure, but still we have managed to keep the mortality rate very low,” the minister said.
