Healthcare Access Limitations : Most importantly, the access of seniors to healthcare services has become limited. Lockdown has affected healthcare delivery at hospitals and clinics – both for chronic and acute illnesses. Purchase of medicines, ordering blood tests at home, access to doctor consultations and elective surgeries – every aspect of healthcare has been impacted as a result of lockdown, and fiven that seniors are the biggest users of these facilities; they have lost access to these. Ans. Medical services, including ambulance, hospitals, medical and paramedical staff remain functional during lockdown to handle emergencies. For all the medical support staff, the Kolkata Police has issued movement pass to allow for unrestricted access during this period. Elective surgeries are requested to be put on hold or postponed during this period.
