The Indian Government’s Health Ministry has approved a new category for selection and nomination of candidates from children of COVID Warriors under Central pool MBBS or BDS seats for the academic year 2020-21.

There will be a reservation of five Central pool MBBS seats for this category of students for the year 2020-21. This announcement came in a press release.

This decision coming from the government aims to honor and dignify the contribution made by the COVID warriors in the management and treatment of COVID-19 patients.

The Minister said that the State and Union Territory governments will certify the eligibility for this new category. The selection of candidates for this category will be by the Medical Council Committee through an online application.

The seat allocation in the Central pool MBBS seats maybe for the selection and nomination of the candidates from among the children of COVID warriors who lost their lives because of the virus. These will also be for those who had accidental deaths while on COVID-19-related duty.

COVID warriors are all public healthcare providers which also includes community health workers. Community workers may have to be in direct contact with COVID-19 patients and also take care of them. These workers may be at risk of contracting the virus from positive patients.

Staff from private hospitals and volunteer/retired/local urban bodies/daily-wage/contracted/ad hoc/outsourced staff that are hired by States/ Central hospitals/autonomous hospitals of Central/States/UTs, AIIMS, and Institutes of National Importance/hospitals of Central Ministries drafted for COVID-19-related responsibilities are all included under the list.

India’s coronavirus cases have increased to 89.58 lakh. The number of fresh infections is 45,576, while the number of recoveries has decreased to over 83.83 lakh. According to the data from the health ministry, these numbers are pushing the national recovery rate to 93.58 percent.

The ministry assures that a vaccine for the deadly virus will be out by 2021. But for this to happen the preparation needs to start from now.
