The Manipur government on Thursday ordered all doctors and other health staff of district hospitals, CHC, PHC, HWC and PHSC in the state to remain in their places of duty without fail to meet medical emergencies around the clock.

All the public health facilities should remain alert around the clock to meet health emergencies, stated an order issued by Health Services director Dr K Rajo. It asserted that the day-wise duty roster system is strictly prohibited for doctors and health staff.

Directing all chief medical officers and medical superintendents to take necessary action in this regard, it added that non-compliance of the above orders shall be strictly dealt with as per rules. 

The order was issued following the increasing trend in the spread of COVID-19 infections which have become steeper and more widespread all over the state, it added.
