12th April 2020: Corona Mat Karo Na — Conversation With Dr. Kshitij Guglani
The novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, pandemic has spread across 184 countries and territories. Today is the 18th day of India's 21-day lockdown. As Coronavirus pandemic straddles its grip over India, we are facing an unprecedented situation. In times like these, fake news, with our recently established “Whatsapp University”, has become quite real. To stop the spread of misinformation, this week on Web Journalism Podcasts, our host for the series Corona Mat Karona, Ridhima Manocha, called Dr. Kshitij Guglani, an MBBS doctor to clear some doubts. Dr Kshitij has recently completed his MBBS degree from a reputed government college based in Ahmedabad. He was working as an intern at Sheth Lallubhai Gordhandas Municipal Hospital (LG Hospital) when he received a call one day from his senior official, informing that he would have to take charge at a quarantine medical facility. Hearing that, Dr. Kshitij expresses that he was anxious as well as excited at the opportunity to be able to serve his country at the battlefield. The following conversation with him records his experiences at the quarantine facility — giving us an insight into the on-ground situation. Tune in now to know what goes on in these quarantine facilities, what a doctor has to say about the lack of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) across the country, and how you can prevent the spread of COVID-19!
