Yediyurappa lauds nurse on duty as her kid waits at home

Bengaluru, April 9 (IANS) Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa praised a nurse on coronavirus duty for 15 days without break even as her daughter waited for her at home, said an official here on Thursday.

“Moved by a video clip on social media showing a 3-year-old girl crying for her mother on duty for 15 days continuously, Yediyurappa lauded nurse K. Sugandha for her spirit of service and sacrifice,” an official in the Chief Minister’s Office told IANS.

Sugandha has been on duty in a coronavirus ward at the state-run Belagavi Institute of Medical Sciences hospital, about 500km northwest from here.

“Yediyurappa called up Sugandha on Wednesday and appreciated her dedication to work, putting duty above personal life, while her young daughter waited for her at home,” the official said.

“‘You are struggling and working hard without meeting your daughter for so long and crying for you at home. I am moved by her plight. Please cooperate. You will have better opportunities in future. God bless you,’ Yediyurappa told the nurse on mobile phone,” the official said.

Karnataka has registered 191 Covid-19 cases, including 28 discharges and 6 deaths, according to a health official.
