Ludhiana, May 1

Dr Kiran Gill today took charge of Civil Surgeon here after Dr Sukhjeevan Kakkar retired yesterday.

Before this posting, Dr Gill was Special Covid in-charge in Ludhiana and prior to that she was the Ludhiana District Immunisation Officer.

Dr Gill, after joining, said, “Since we are going through the pandemic, the focus will be on controlling its spread and emerging as winners.”

About vaccination, Dr Gill said the stock available was less and they would be following the instructions issued by the government regarding the vaccination of different categories of people.

“I request people not to go out of their homes unnecessarily. Stay indoors and stay safe. If going out then don’t forget to wear mask and carry a sanitiser. The first thing that one should do after returning home is wash hands. The department alone cannot contain the spread and need the help of the people for the same. We need to break the chain and people should come forward for vaccination,” she said.

Dr Gill joined the services on January 1, 1991, and is MD in anaesthesiology and critical care. She has served as HOD, Anaesthesia, at Civil Hospital, Ludhiana, Senior Medical Officer at ESI number 7. She was the District Immunisation Officer and then Special Covid in-charge before joining as Civil Surgeon, Ludhiana.
