Moodbidri, Oct 16: The health condition of teacher Padmakshi, who is being treated for coronavirus infection since the last 18 days, deteriorated on Thursday October 15 afternoon. The doctors are learnt to have recommended treatment supported by Ecmo therapy for her. Ecmo machines are not available in Mangaluru and therefore she is likely to be airlifted.

Padmakshi's husband Shashikanth, and daughter Aishwarya, discussed the issue with Dakshina Kannada district deputy commissioner Dr K V Rajendra, and district health officer Dr Bairy. Former MLA from here, Abhayachandra Jain is in contact with minister Kota Srinivas Poojary and other ministers.


Padmakshi

Padmakshi's daughter had drawn the attention of people to her predicament after her mother and father, both teachers, who used to visit various places as part of the government's 'Vidyagama' scheme, contracted coronavirus infection. She explained that her mother was in the intensive care unit from day 1, all financial sources have dried up and her mother's condition was serious even though her father had recovered, and sought financial help. She had tagged chief minister B S Yediyurappa, Moodbidri MLA Umanath Kotian, MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, ministers S Suresh Kumar, Dr Sudhakar, and others.

The government, taking note of newspaper reports about the plight of the family, assured to meet the medical expenses of Padmakshi besides contacting Aishwarya and promising all help. In the meantime, Abhayachandra Jain said that on Friday, a mass prayer by local dignitaries has been arranged at Munisuvrutha Swami Basadi here for the health improvement of the ailing teacher.

    A dedicated teacher lost life for no reason. These teachers teaching at all odd places are taking risk because this disease spread every where and coming in contact with the infected is quite natural as they teach to group of students from different areas. These teachers need to be tested for the disease frequently to avoid such deaths. RIP madam you sacrificed your life for the welfare of the society.

    How much lonely her spouse, daughter and entire student community whose life was touched by the great teacher. Selfless service for the humanity; how many of us can think? Our fragility because of such a tiny virus has shaken up the humanity; amidst this pandemic putting her life to death to help humanity.
    She never cared whoever she came across but with a pure heart she served without looking into the cast, creed, rich, poor!
    O God, grant this madam’s soul your eternal rest; her husband, daughter and all her loved ones’ to bear the pain of great her loss.
    RIP Madam, Om Shanthi.

    Was vidyagama required? Who will fill the void by her death in her family? Its heartbreaking. The GOK should compensate by paying Rs 50 lacs as done for the frontline warriors. Even Teachers are frontline warriors as their lives are risked to follow the Government's instructions.

    Teachers are asked to work by order and on less salary. Many teachers are suffering from Corona. Now, different different ideas they implement for reopening the school /colleges where safety, precautions and preparations are zero.... ..what a tragedy....will the concerned departments can give this teacher back to their family? Now quiet...

    Few days back there were some readers here commenting that Covid is all hoax and that wearing masks is dangerous, hope such dungheads realise that for the affected and family it is an unfortunate tragedy, we cannot let our guard down anytime soon, very unfortunate that a young teacher died in her line of duty imposed on her by a thoughtless government. May she rest in peace 🙏 and her family members be bestowed the strength to bear with the loss of their loved one.

    It's very sad to know that a young teacher has succumbed to Covid because of going outside to teach the students. Government aided schools are in pathetic condition even before Covid out break
    Teachers are made to go as Covid warriors in unhygienic areas.low salaries no facilities are the hallmark in most of the aided and unaided schools. Work out put at it's highest with no benefits..Tragic end of a dedicated teacher. May the departed soul rest in peace .May God grant solace to the bereaved family members. Hope government will stop sending teachers outside during the Coronavirus pandemic.
