The government has decided to utilise medical students as adequate human resources for responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a high level Covid-19 review meeting today decided to allow deployment of medical interns in Covid management duties under the supervision of their faculty,  as part of the internship rotation. 

"The services of final year MBBS students can be utilised for providing services like tele-consultation and monitoring of mild Covid cases after due orientation by and under supervision of faculty," the government release mentioned. The following service of the MBBS students will  reduce the workload on existing doctors engaged in Covid duty, it added. 

The government also decided to postpone NEET-PG exam for at least four months and the exam will not be held before August 31. "Students will also be given atleast one month of time after announcement of exam before it is conducted. This will make a large number of qualified doctors available for Covid duties," the release mentioned.
