  1. Concerned Citizen says:

    In the picture it appears that at least three or more are doctors, based on the visible name tags that are on the table in front of the persons.

    How can people in the medical profession expect to convey the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic if two of the five people are not able to wear a mask properly? Washing hands to keep the virus from entering through our eyes, nose or mouth along with using a mask to keep air-borne transmissions have been shown as an effective way to keep infections at bay and from further spread.

    PLEASE follow the safety precautions presecribed by the medical professionals, ALL the time. During this pandemic, having your face fully visible for a photograph is a vain, reckless and selfish act howver appearing in a group photograph, with proper masks, is another opportunity to send the appropriate message adding weight to the matter conveyed in this newspaper article. All efforts to spread the message of safety are diluted when such opportunities display careless behaviour.

  2. Hey Covid19! says:

    These doctors look more like pickpockets, really are interested in picking the pockets of poor patients, that simple. The more the Virus spreads, the more they will have opportunities to fleece patients. They are the medical community of pickpockets. PM Modi’s India is not interested in high quality healthcare provided free in government hospitals like those in West European countries.
