One side we are praising Sister Lini who sacrificed her life while taking care of Nipah virus infected patients, on the other hand people are fearing to even allow the hospital staff to come near them. It seems as if the praise exists only on the social media.
On Wednesday, when nurses from Perambra taluk hospital in Kozhikode entered a bus, the rest of the passengers protested and got off the vehicle. Even rickshaw drivers are refusing to take them. In another case, police registered a case against two workers of Mavoor Road Crematorium, who allegedly showed reluctance to cremate the body of the deceased.
Staff in the hospitals that treated Nipah patients and people who are in contact with the patients are being isolated. “People are scared and are reacting due to fear,” said Kozhikode district medical officer Dr Jayasree Vasudevan, highlighting the need for awareness campaigns.
Lots of misinformation is also circulating and people fear the hospital staff after the demise of Nurse Lini.
It is a critical situation when the hospital staff must be motivated as they are risking their lives in such a highly infective environment, and their sacrifice should not go unrecognised.
