He has also suggested to the OPSC that if it does not wish to postpone the examination, it may give more examination centers in different cities for the convenience of the examinees. They fear that a Kovid infection may occur if they come to this critical turn.
One candidate, Dolagobinda Acharya, said that the OPSC has only examination centers in Bhubaneswar and Cuttack that report hundreds of cases on a daily basis. “Kovid cases are increasing in the city. Many national and state level examinations have been canceled or postponed due to increasing cases of Kovid-19. We hope that the OPSC will take care of our pleas.

He said that many of the examinees are on Kovid’s duty or are practicing in various hospitals as junior doctors. “If they become infected after attending examinations, it will affect the health services. Hundreds of candidates will appear in the computer-based examination. If some of them become infected, this test will become a super-spreader phenomenon, ”he said.
The protesters said that there is no problem if the OPSC postpones the examination. Kovid-19 can test it after a reduction in cases. He said, “If the Commission is not interested in postponing the examination, it should increase the examination centers for the benefit of the candidates.”
The OPSC will conduct a computer-based test on April 28 for the posts of assistant surgeons. He has also submitted a memorandum to the secretary of the state Health and Family Welfare Department to look into the matter. Many candidates have requested the Chief Minister, Health Secretary, OPSC President and others to postpone the examination through Twitter.
