Easing of Travel Restrictions Provide Respite as 21 Patients from Myanmar Land in Delhi for Organ Transplant

According to a statement by the hospital, these patients have been waiting for organ transplants for over six months now. Easing of travel restrictions has come as a respite for these patients requiring specialised medical attention, it said.

 

The Indian Mission in Myanmar was of great help in transporting these patients. They had been waiting for a while, some even for over six months, to get treated. These are all critically ill patients who were on regular follow up but couldn't travel for treatment, it said.

 

    Leading the renal transplant procedures Dr Guleria said, "The uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, lockdowns, and border restrictions has proved fatal for millions of international patients who choose India for their medical treatments."
 

Ease in travel restrictions and also declining Covid-19 positivity rate in India has come as a relief for international patients seeking specialised medical attention, he said.
