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 should 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.
Since the construction of newly building completed for our health sub-centre. We have been little much worried about minor health issues. This was a basic need for our village as we suffered a lot in past years. Our health sub-centre is still need a lot of facilities in terms of system upgradations by operating new different sub fields that could gear up for facilitating more and more services. So far, it has reduced the level of tension among the people to some extent not too much since then it was operated. At local level, these Sub-centres are allotted only to compensate with the health related issues which are of minor scale and can be treated easily at such centres. The sole aim of village health sub-centres is to provide primary health services to people.
First of all, Indian Govt. had officially announced that above the age of 45, men or women must have to get vaccinated in the first drive as they are very prone to covid-19 infections owing to have many ailments of various types. 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 was also started at local health sub-centres almost in every village for immediately access to vaccination. The sub-centre of yungoora successfully did the job in giving vaccine shots to people under the complete supervision of Block Medical Officer during the entire phase.
The Staff were on regular duty that could make it possible and a well known Govt. teacher, Mohammad Shafi wani also worked continuously with the staff. On the other hand, ASHAs and ANGANWADI WORKERS of our village were also engaged with them. They also shown positive attitude and remained cooperative throughout the vaccine drive. They surveyed from door to door for counting the members of each family who have got vaccinated and recorded their names in registrars. Besides, they raise the confidence level of those family members who turned away their faces when hearing the name of vaccination. Later, it was an unprecedented approach that they prepared people mentally by surveying number of times for convincing them to get inoculated at sub centre as soon as possible. “Khateebs” of our nearby Masjids frequently announced on Friday sermons for urging elder people to go for vaccination. This concerted effort has brought it to the final destination.
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 sub centre. 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.
