In order to overcome shortage of manpower for providing treatment to positive patients at government hospitals and covid care centres, the Central government has reportedly taken a decision to utilise the services of final year MBBS and nursing students. An official announcement to hire their services is expected on Monday.
On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting with Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan and officials and took stock of covid situation. The final year MBBS and nursing students joining covid duties will be given high priority in recruitment of government jobs.
