The ongoing lockdown imposed to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a lot of inconvenience to the people, particularly those suffering from chronic illnesses and require regular medication. The lockdown has resulted in the restriction on transportation which resulted in the patient not getting their dose of medicine.
For lack of medicine and support systems, their condition is worsening day by day. In such situation the postal department has turned into a good Samaritan to help the needy. The department is providing medicines in several areas including the remote area of the state.
The entire country is facing various problems including rural areas. People from the city are not allowed to come to the village and people from the village do not dare to come to the city. Many patients suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease are the worst sufferers during the ongoing lockdown as they cannot go to the hospital or consult the doctor or procure the medicine as no mode of transport is operational.
People suffering from health issues are getting deteriorated day by day. Thus people are awaiting the lockdown to be ended soon so that they could get treatment and medication.
