A doctor in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang district has donated a month’s salary to the district’s hospital to support it in its fight against the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr Sangey Thinley, Tawang’s district surveillance officer for COVID-19, handed over a sum of Rs 1,07,327 to the KDS district hospital authorities on Thursday. Deputy Commissioner Sang Phuntsok, District Medical Officer Dr Wangdi Lama and Medical Superintendent Dr N Namchoom were also present.
“As Tawang at present is witnessing a spike in the number of COVID-19 cases, I have decided to extend this small support towards the district as my social responsibility. The amount can be used to purchase rapid antigen test (RAT) kits so that the process of testing people continues without any hiccups,” Dr Thinley said.
Dr Thinley has also appealed to the denizens of the districts to come forth and extend their contribution to the district’s health department.
Tawang registered 37 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday that took the total active cases tally to 174.
