Appreciating the Prime Minister’s initiatives in handling the COVID-19 pandemic, the letter went on to highlight the issues faced by the healthcare workers and staff regarding availability of Personal Protective Equipments (PPE), testing equipment and quarantine facilities. When these medical workers voiced their concerns on social media, they received a ‘harsh backlash’, the letter said.

Condemning these events, the association called the government to create a ‘healthy space for debate and discussion to aid healthcare workers rather than ridicule them’.
