New Delhi/Kolkata, May 17 : India's Covid fight is facing a major challenge with nearly 400 nurses resigning from Bengal hospitals and returning to their home states. According to reports reaching the National Capital on Sunday, while 185 nurses went back to Manipur on Saturday, another 186 are embarking on towards Odisha, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and other states.
All of these nurses were serving different private hospitals spread across the state, including Kolkata. The reason behind the mass resignations of nurses from state hospitals is yet to be ascertained. Demands are pouring in from various quarters for interventions in this regard by the State Government as well as the Centre to find the exact cause as the statewide Corona death toll heightened to 232.
