In Andhra Pradesh, the government has selected some Volunteers and they are acting as middle persons between the government and the public. In the same way, some youth can be trained and posted as health workers who can do the work as required. It is good if the other state governments will also try to do the same.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Knowledge is power.
These young boys and girls will be given proper training and they will perform as semi medical staff. It will eradicate the poverty of these young boys and girls because they will do it for money. Almost all hospitals are facing a shortage of staff. Most of them are directly dealing with new patients coming to their respective staff.
China had already taken this technique to counter coronavirus. Local administration recruited young volunteers to arrange all necessary items and help the health department also.
With a proper planning and vision the well trained and experienced health sector staff-presently in service and recently retired from service- may be used for the current Pandemic. Training support reserve backup team may be taken up as a continuous and regular system after the current pandemic danger is over and things come back to normal.
I am not sure of Deli, but in states there are good force of ASHA workers, Anganwadi personnel, local ward/council members etc who know the local geography and local people closely and have rapport and some command or influence on them . They may be trained in the first instant and used for such situations providing precaution and care equipment.
Nursing education should include emphasis the training on precautions and care about heavily contagious diseases(if not already in place).
