Bengaluru: With 8,167 active COVID-19 patients and the new cases touching the four-figure mark in the last two days, it has sent even doctors and nurses in to a panic mode. Almost all the doctors and nurses from the charity based HBS hospital in Shivajinagar have abandoned the medical facility. The director Taha Mateen made a humble appeal and begged doctors and nurses to give only six hours a day. He made an emotional appeal by saying, like the way Army, police and fire force persons become frontline workers during emergency, now due to medical emergency, it is doctors turn to be frontline warriors. The video has gone viral and also has indicated the pathetic health system.
