Consult doctors on the phone, tele-medicine services in Bengal soon

Jun 29, 2020 18:31 IST

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said the state would introduce tele-medicine services from July 1 to enable patients to consult doctors for medical advice over telephone instead of visiting hospitals and clinics. The state's chief secretary has requested the Centre to stop running long-distance trains to Bengal in order to curb the spread of coronavirus. Mamata Banerjee said she has requested that trains from five Covid-19 hotspots be suspended for the time being, adding that domestic flights to the state should also be restricted.
