Bhubaneswar, Apr 5: In view of surge in Covid positive cases, the Odisha Government has deployed 36 Post PG doctors under the CDM and PHOs of different districts with immediate effect.
While 10 post PG doctors each have been deployed in Kalahandi and Nuapada districts, eight each have been deployed in Malkangiri and Nabarangpur district, according to the order issued by the Health and Family Welfare Department on Monday.
“Post PG Doctors are hereby deployed under the CDM and PHOs of the different district for smooth management of the Covid-related work,” read the order.
It may be noted that Government health institutions, including medical college and hospitals, are running with less numbers of doctors than sanctioned posts.
While the number of Covid positive cases is on the rise now, deployment of Post PG doctors will certainly be helpful in concerned districts, said an health expert.
