The 2nd wave of Govt epidemic across the country intensified last May. Doctors, who were frontline staff, were also killed. A total of 646 doctors working across the country have died. But in Karnataka alone, only 9 doctors have been killed.
This is due to all the steps taken by the Government of Karnataka to protect the frontline staff, he posted.
