We are familiar with the present worsening situation of Covid-19 in India where the condition is very serious from the last one month. On every day we see the death reports in news, Cases surge in due to uncontrolled infection. This indicates that the second wave of covid-19 has trapped people strongly within its arms. Everyone is worried about this deadly disease that has affected each sector more or less to disrupt the normal function. There is no scientific evidence yet from any deemed research health organization about this disease that how long will it stay in human population but a few published journals have almost acknowledged that it would infect further by changing its genome inside the human body for accelerating the proliferation cycle in order to resist for any drug. The second wave on its new move is a double mutant variant. Virologists said this one can be more catastrophic than previous one as we see across the India. In spite of this, we must properly follow SOPs like as; wearing mask, frequent washing of hands, avoid gatherings and keep social distancing in the outside. These basic precautions would somehow control the infection at large. There should not be any kind of advertent recklessness with regard to SOPs.
Nature has assigned many responsibilities over human beings in this world just to assist others in bad times. We all are engaged in one way or other in order to fulfill them for showing the sympathetic and humanistic remarks with the people. But the nature of work may be different that does not literally differ the essence of assistance in truest sense. So assistance or service is a rare attribute found among the humans. This attribute was not given to other creatures at all. It should be valued more in every aspect of human life. Similarly, the health assistance is given by medical professionals who have a profound knowledge of medical science and years of experience to equip effectively with the health issues that predominantly demonstrate their worth of being a good medical professional in the department. These medical professionals are always in the forefront for providing services 24X7. Any professional of any field has a responsibility on his/her shoulders to be very active in utilizing his /her field proficiency for the betterment of people. Life is not defined what you have achieved so far, but life is defined what you have given to your society. For example; when we have any sort of disease or anyone among us feels a little discomfort for his health. We rush to hospital to get on timely treatment in order to have a good health in the future. So, we get these services from our medical professionals who are engaged all time in their work. In border sense, the health system relies upon the two important pillars i.e. efficient Health staff and well-equipped machines, labs for resulting in better treatment and clear diagnostic reveals. Health component is considered one of the key components which come under the state list as per Indian constitution. It needs huge investment to strength the overall mechanism that could make it fully operational to carry out the entire health burden.
First of all, Indian Govt. has officially announced that above the age of 45, men or women must have to get vaccinated in the phase first as they are very prone to covid-19 infections owing to have many complications. Since the inception of vaccine drive of covid-19 in India for the people whose age was above 45. Our Jammu and Kashmir UT, received the covaxin after two and half months from the central. The regional Medical institutes, District hospitals, Primary health centres took the responsibility for carrying out the vaccination drive smoothly under the specified medical guidelines. Likewise, the drive has also started at local health sub-centres almost in every village for immediately access to vaccination. The staff are on regular duty to put all efforts in a positive way. On the other hand, ASHAs and AGANWADI workers in the villages are also engaged with them. They have also shown positive attitude and act to be very determined during the entire process. Let’s tell you the truth by giving my own village’s example “yungoora”.They have surveyed from door to door for counting the members of each family who have got vaccinated and recorded their names in registrars. In addition, they have encouraged those family members who first turned away their faces by hearing the name of vaccination. It is an unprecedented approach that they have prepared people mentally by surveying number of times for convincing them to get inoculated at sub centres as soon as possible.
Such a Team work always bear fruits when performers are well dedicated to their activity. Everyone gets the opportunity to work with others that makes him/her capable to lessen the half workload. This is an example which we have witnessed at our health sub-centre yungoora. I therefore, conclude with this line; Health professionals are the real heroes who live with open heart and are down to earth. We have proud of you and we staunchly believe that you would remain motivated and give your best in every time. It is my privilege that I have expressed my views in favor of this noble profession in which the health working staff save life of others by putting themselves at stake in tough times. No one can weaken your strength and passion in which you are engaged but you must keep your hopes high and never let them down.
