The Chief Minister informed that there has been a very good response to the call for people to volunteer for the Covid Brigade. The registration on the Covid Jagratha Portal has increased significantly. So far, 12,804 people have registered out of which 6,236 are medical professionals. There are 2,397 doctors, 2,605 nurses, 706 lab technicians and 530 pharmacists registered from all streams of medicine including Allopathy, Ayurveda and Homoeopathy. All these registered people will be kept ready as a reserve force. If the number of cases increases as predicted by experts, their services can be used in hospitals and Covid First-Line Treatment Centres. The first team has gone to Kasargod yesterday for deployment. The CM also requested more people to register for the Covid Brigade.
