Thiruvananthapuram (SunstarTV Bureau): Gloomy future havocs upon around 10,000 students from Kerala, those studying medicine in China, as the Chinese government prohibits them from entry into the country to resume their studies.
The strict initiative has been taken by China government after the first reported Covid case in India was a medical student in Wuhan who had come to her hometown Thrissur on vacation.
Students have paid the final year fee of Rs 3.25 lakh and the classes are being conducted online. However, the National Medical Commission will not recognize medical courses conducted online and this will create major problems for the students as delayed classes will lead to the course being left incomplete.
According to K K Shailaja, the Kerala Health Minister statement, “This is an inter-country issue; the Central government can intervene more. We are trying to bring the issue to the Central government’s notice”.
With most of the students hailing from middle and lower-middle-class families, any delay in completion of courses will throw their family budget off the rails, and parents and students are anxious as they look for a solution to this vexed issue.
