On the ninth day of worship of Adishakti, we worship the form of Goddess who bestows the attainment of public welfare with knowledge, strength, intelligence. This form of mother is also considered to give freedom from disease and fear. For the last one and a half years, women doctors who have been fighting Kovid infection are engaged in public welfare and service work similar to their mother's form. One of them is Dr Minali Gupta, resident of the Department of Anesthesia, Baba Raghav Das (BRD) Medical College, Gorakhpur. In the second wave, when the fear was more than the first wave, many doctors were avoiding touching and seeing the patient, then Dr. Minali was calm and engaged in freeing people from disease and fear.
Self-deployed in ICU in the second wave
In the second wave of Kovid infection, which became serious from April 2021, there was so much fear in the minds of people that even in the air, people were locked in their homes assuming the virus. The infection was spreading rapidly. All five hundred beds of the only Level 3 Kovid Hospital built in BRD Medical College to admit very serious patients were filled in a few days. On an average, there was one death every hour. Many doctor-staff were busy in getting their duty removed from the Kovid ward and Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Few people dared to go inside. In such a situation, Dr. Minali Gupta got posted twice in Kovid ICU. For the first time from April 15 to 30, he did duty in Kovid ICU. Around 200 patients were treated during this period.
She herself got infected, recovered and did her duty again
On May 3, Dr. Minali herself got infected. His oxygen level had come down to 82 while the lung infection level had reached 60 percent. He himself had to be admitted to the ICU till May 28. After being discharged, rested for a few days, then from June 15 to 30, took deployment in Kovid ICU.
It was necessary to understand the words of patients in gestures
Giving medicines on time to the patients, talking to them, asking about their movements and most importantly, understanding their need in gestures and making them feel that I understand, was very important. Did it and I am happy that I was successful in this exam. My husband Dr. Avneesh boosted my morale.
During the second wave of deployment in the high period of infection, Dr. Minali boosted the self-confidence of the patients admitted to the ICU with home care and a dose of affection. Dr. Minali says that in the second wave it seemed that every person passing by was infected. It was necessary for people to stay away from the infected person, but it was also necessary that negative feelings should not be allowed in the patients. Self-confidence should be increased. It should be made aware that he is among the family members. This could not have happened by staying away from the patients. The relatives of the patients were not with them. There were many patients who could not even eat medicine from their hands. Then as a doctor I chose not to survive, but to fight. This is my responsibility. Studied for this. Took training. I cannot run in times of crisis.
