YDA demands 15-day curfew in Balochistan

QUETTA: Young Doctors Association of Balochistan has expressed grave concerns over the rapid spread of coronavirus at the local level, following the easing of lockdown and demanded the government to impose a 15-day curfew and complete lockdown across the province.

“If the situation remains the same, there will be less space in hospitals. Due to a low budget, the condition of Balochistan Health Department is unsatisfactory. 300 to 400 tests a day are insufficient. This is a matter of concern. We cannot wait any longer. Doctors and health care providers who died of coronavirus shall be declared martyrs,” Young Doctors Association President Dr. Yasir Achakzai and other doctors said while addressing a press conference in Civil Hospital Quetta on Sunday.

They added that YDA Balochistan Grand Health Alliance supports all the demands of Punjab. “Coronavirus is spreading rapidly in Balochistan due to the softening of lockdown, which has increased the number of cases in four days. We not only  suggest a complete lockdown across the province but a curfew should also be imposed in the entire province for 15 days as it is the only way to prevent this virus.”

The YDA president further said, “The government will have to take tough decisions regarding the lockdown. If measures are not taken, there will be less space in hospitals and precious lives will be lost. Doctors and healthcare providers are on the front lines for the prevention and treatment of coronavirus. At present, 31 doctors have been infected, five paramedics and other staffers are suffering from it as well.”

He also disclosed how there is lack of facilities in the hospitals and there is no access to oxygen for ventilators. “On the contrary, the oxygen plant in Sheikh Zayed Hospital is not functional, due to which the ventilators are being supplied with oxygen cylinders.”

Demanding a huge amount be allocated for health in the next budget, he said, the doctors from all over are protesting against the non-provision of facilities in hospitals and we support all their demands.

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
