The coronavirus workforce will have teachers, ASHA workers, youth of the village and social workers. They will be trained by the concerned officials also.

As the cases of coronavirus infections are rising, DC Dr Rajendra K V will seek the cooperation of private doctors also. Appeal is made to the doctors of private hospitals, which cannot provide beds for Covid patients in their hospital, to work in government hospitals of the district. This arrangement is made under the rules and regulations of the government. It will become mandatory for private doctors to follow the appeal of DC in future.
