The Health facilities and manpower in health institutions in rural areas is very scarce to deal with anticipated situation.They further added that the government is ignoring the fact that the casualties are still higher and till yesterday the toll was above thirty five including twenty from Jammu region and this is not less as several precious lives are lost every day. In this situation the unlocking process has to be very thoughtful and careful to avoid increase in the already ongoing risks and not to waste the benefits of the entire lockdown.Urging the government to solve the issue with the transport operators as the limited unlocking would require the public transport to the common man and poor people besides employees, they also insisted on starting emergency treatments to non COVID patients in different hospitals and centres than COVID hospitals including in rural areas where no private consultations are available.The senior Congress leaders laid thrust on the government to fill the gap in health facilities and vaccination, testing and monitoring in Rural areas and bridge the gap between Rural and urban, as rightly said by the apex court of the country.
