The Delhi government will recommend the names of ILBS director Dr SK Sarin, Lok Nayak Hospital medical director Dr Suresh Kumar, and Max Healthcare clinical director (internal medicine) Dr Sandeep Budhiraja to the Centre for the upcoming Padma Awards this year, according to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday.Kejriwal said the three "Corona fighters" were chosen from a list of 740 names given by 9,427 people during a digital news conference.“It was a very difficult task..

These three names will be forwarded to the Centre. These three doctors will, in a way, represent all the doctors and paramedics of Delhi. The doctors and paramedics served us selflessly during the entire pandemic, putting their own lives at risk. It is time to honour them,” Kejriwal stated.The proposals follow Kejriwal's announcement on July 27 that the Delhi government will solely nominate doctors and healthcare workers for the Padma awards this year, which include the Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan, and Padma Vibhushan.

A committee led by deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, with members including chief secretary Vijay Dev and divisional commissioner Sanjeev Khirwar, vetted 740 public nominations and chose the three doctors for the honours Dr. Sarin was a driving force behind the establishment of ILBS in 2010, the world's first fully dedicated deemed-to-be liver university.“He started the world’s first-ever plasma bank at ILBS. This plasma bank served people for 24 hours and on all 7 days of the week. Over 8,000 plasma units were issued from this plasma bank. He also started the first RT-PCR facility under the Delhi government. Recently, he also started Delhi’s first state-of-art Covid-19 genome sequencing facility.

He has worked tirelessly for the last three decades, which include transforming medical education as well as increasing the awareness, prevention, and access to diagnosis and treatment for liver diseases. Throughout the Covid-19 wave, he has been working relentlessly to serve the people and provide assistance to the Delhi government,” Kejriwal stated.According to the CM, Dr Kumar's Lok Nayak Hospital treated the most Covid-19 patients in the country.“Under Dr Kumar’s supervision, Lok Nayak hospital successfully treated a record high of at least 20,500 Covid-19 patients.

He started India’s second plasma bank at the hospital. He also started a unique video calling facility to enable Covid-19 patients to interact with their families. Further, he started a genome sequencing lab at Lok Nayak hospital. To meet the increased need for ICU beds during the Covid-19 period, he increased the number of ICU beds from 50 to 900 and also increased the number of oxygen beds by making more than 2,000 oxygen beds available,” Kejriwal mentioned.According to a statement released by the Delhi government, Dr Kumar was also important in the establishment of a dedicated labour room for pregnant women infected with Covid-19, where more than 627 deliveries, including 266 successful caesarean sections, were done.

He also built a dedicated 24-hour-a-day dialysis facility for Covid-19 patients, with 17 dialysis machines that helped 2,151 people, according to the report.Dr. Budhiraja, according to Kejriwal, is the country's first physician to use plasma treatment for Covid-19 patients.“He played a crucial role in delivering care and treatment to Covid-19 patients in Delhi and North India... He was actively involved in the treatment of hundreds of Covid-19 cases through home care, OPD, and hospital (ward & ICU). Dr Budhiraja also provided guidance to Covid-19 patients via virtual consultancy when he himself got infected with Covid-19. He was also actively involved in spreading awareness and knowledge about Covid-19 through electronic and print media,” Kejriwal stated.
