(Our Bureau, May 11) Meet Dr Harmandeep Singh Boparai, a New York-based specialist in anaesthesiology and critical care, who has returned to his hometown Amritsar to strengthen the fight against the pandemic. Since reaching India on April 1, Harmandeep has been using his experience to train doctors and nurses on the Covid protocol New York city followed last year at the peak of the pandemic, he told Hindustan Times. He helped establish a capacity for intensive care at Dukh Niwaran Hospital, a hospital formerly run by his father as a charitable unit. Next, Harmandeep, who moved to the US in 2011 after completing his MBBS from Punjab, will move to Mumbai to work in a 1,000-bed hospital for a couple of weeks for Doctors Without Borders. He plans to remain in India till the situation normalises. “We must continue to support doctors and give them our wishes and solidarity as this is not an easy job,” he said.
