DIMAPUR, APR 22 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/22/2020 12:47:51 PM IST

Reacting to the physical assaults meted out on Dr. Nosezol Sezo on April 3, 2020 in Dimapur and Dr. Mongshithung Murry on April 17, 2020 at Wokha town by the police personnel, the   health ministry of the NSCN(I-M) Wednesday  said it was appalled at the “unpleasant situations” created by the state police personnel targeting the doctors in Nagaland and  strongly  condemned such “mindless violence” against the doctors.

In a Statement , NSCN (I-M) health kilonser Dr. A. Yanthan maintained that doctors, nurses and other medical staff were the frontline warriors in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic across the world.

He also said doctors and other medical staff perform their professional duties with unwavering spirit notwithstanding many difficulties and risks involved. 

Describing doctors as the “real forces of humanity”, Yanthan reminded that their main concern was to save the lives of their patients come what may. He therefore said, police personnel should, therefore, deal with the doctors and other medical staff with a sense of humanity and “not in brutish manner.”

Further, he reminded that state security machineries and personnel,   represent the law and order implementing force and were to protect the people and not take law and order into their hands as per their whims. 

Yanthan said that assaulting frontline workers made a mockery of the fight against COVID-19 whereas it was a bounden duty of the police force to protect the health workers from all unseen forces.

The NSCN (I-M) health ministry has, therefore, appealed to the police personnel on duty to be more humane and professional.

It also expressed sympathy with Dr. Sezo and Dr. Murry besides the entire medical fraternity over the “unfortunate incidents.”

Meanwhile, the NSCN (I-M) health ministry has reminded all responsible that the pandemic was a global issue and  that everyone, rich or poor, stood equally vulnerable to COVID-19. 

It reiterated that the fight against the virus demanded cooperation and understanding from all. 

The health ministry also pointed out that the state government and its work forces were trying their best despite limited resources and logistics at their disposal.

Further,it called upon all to continue to adhere to the preventive measures. 

The NSCN(I-M) health ministry also said that till a vaccine and scientific remedy against COVID-19was available, everything was unpredictable and therefore urged upon all toe follow   the protocol laid down by World Health Organization (WHO) and government.
