Doctors in Calcutta have decided to set up a museum to commemorate the frontline workers who died in the battle against coronavirus. They are planning t document how lives changed amid the pandemic and how the healthcare industry came to the rescue of the common man.

“The museum will be showcasing items like PPE kits, masks, gloves and sanitisers, besides several other materials that became essential in the fight against the lethal virus,” West Bengal Doctors’Forum (WBDF) office-bearer Dr Rajiv Pandey said on Wednesday.

“A proposal has been sent to the state government and a final nod is awaited,” he added.

“This pandemic has come after more than 100 years, even our grandparents have never seen something that we are witnessing,” he told PTI.

According to him, West Bengal alone lost 90 doctors to the pandemic. He said, “We have already lost around 90 doctors in our state to the pandemic. Like so many other things, this time and these people will be forgotten. Future generations should not be allowed to forget the sacrifices made by the doctors. That’s the reason we have planned this museum,” he said.
