Even as fevers rage, doctors reluctant to serve in Idukki

Idukki: Around six thousand people are afflicted with a variety of fevers in the district. Even as fevers rage in the district, the dearth of doctors in hospitals is a matter of grave public concern. Though there was not much rainfall this year, the Health Department has reported high incidence of fevers in the district, including Dengue and Malaria. The District Medical Officer has admitted to a shortage of at least fifty six doctors. Doctors are reluctant to work in Idukki hospitals and most of those serving go on long leave. Government should take action to appoint more doctors for the district.
