 Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday expressed concern over the migration of nurses from Kolkata to their respective home states amid rising cases of Covid-19 and suggested that officers of private hospitals train local people for this task.  The Chief Minister suggested to private hospitals to consider the option of training the local people for basic tasks like giving oxygen to the patient and recording his body temperature.  Banerjee also suggested to medical institutions that they contact retired nurses and other health workers and ask them to serve for some time.  He said, "I heard that 300-350 nurses left the state.  How can a private hospital work in such a situation?  I have asked the Chief Secretary Rajiv Sinha to discuss the option of training local people for basic tasks by talking to private hospitals. "These nurses were from Manipur, Tripura and Odisha.  Last week, she left the job in private hospitals of the city and left for her states.  Meanwhile, six deaths occurred due to Corona virus infection in West Bengal on Monday.  With this, the total death toll in the state increased to 172.  At the same time, 148 new cases of infection were reported in the last 24 hours and the total cases of infection increased to 2,825.
