went to collect data on COVID-19 symptoms.
?12 people allegedly assaulted a health inspector and his team when they went 
there to isolate the family of a patient who had attended the Nizamuddin conclave.
?These attacks are a result of paranoia and are completely unmindful of the many 
risks health-care workers take on, merely doing their work in a pandemic 
situation such as this.
?In Wockhardt, doctors and workers have tested positive while treating patients.
?If these helpers are looked upon as the enemy, it only allows the true foe — the 
virus — to gather strength.

?WHO too has developed guidelines for addressing workplace violence in the 
health sector to support the development of violence prevention policies in non-
emergency settings.
?Baskut Tuncak, UN Special Rapporteur on the implications for human rights of the 
environmentally sound management and disposal of hazardous substances and 
wastes, hailed health-care workers as heroes who must be protected. 
?Stating that the tireless work and self-sacrifice of these workers show the best of 
humanity, he also went on to emphasise that unacceptable shortages in critical 
protective equipment that can stop them from being infected, continue to plague 
nearly all nations battling COVID-19.
?The responsibility of restoring order and ensuring the safety of all health workers, 
whether with personal protective equipment, or against attacks from the public 
ultimately rests with the government, and in equal measure, the people.
