Delhi to train 5,000 health workers ahead of a likely third wave of covid
The trained health workers will be called according to requirement and will be paid for the days they work. Meanwhile, the BJP has already announced plans to train one lakh health workers across the country in anticipation of a third wave of covid.

NEW DELHI, June 17: In order to meet any eventuality of a third wave of coronavirus epidemic, the Delhi Government will train 5,000 health workers soon. Announcing this, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Wednesday that a shortage of trained hands was a major handicap in dealing with the health emergencies during the last two epidemics.

The selected youth will assist the doctors and the nursing staff. They will be given basic training in nursing, paramedics, first aid and home care.

"In the first and second waves, we saw shortage of medical and paramedical staff. So, the Government has an ambitious plan to prepare 5,000 health assistants. 5,000 youth will be given basic training at Delhi's 9 major medical institutes," Kejriwal told newsmen.

Applications for the training can be filed online from June 17, and the training will start on June 28 in batches of 500 trainees. The qualification for applying for the training is Class 12 pass. The minimum age limit is 18 years.

The trained health workers will be called if and when the need arises and they will be paid for the days they are called.

Reacting to Kejriwal's announcement, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sambit Patra said Kejriwal "was doing advertisements during the first phase and doing the same during the second phase. I hope he'll start working now".

"BJP national president JP Nadda ji had already announced plans to create (a cadre of) one lakh trained health workers across the country. Now Kejriwal is announcing the same in Delhi," Sambit Patra said.
