MHA ‘Break the chain’ movement should be started to prevent further proliferation: AIIMS (Delhi) Director
During a press conference on Friday in ten states of India, Joint Secretary (Ministry of Health) Luv Aggarwal said that Kovid has died the most. Agarwal said that referring to epidemic fatigue, he said that the country should keep in mind that we are tired but do not have the virus.
He said that Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Tamil Nadu, and Punjab have been reporting an increase in casualties for the last four weeks. Love Aggarwal said, the daily increase in new confirmed cases of infection from September last year increased the stress. Other countries also saw a similar peak in infection cases, he told media outlets. He further said that states / UTs once again advised to make Kovid suspect wards.
“The root cause is to prevent more people from getting infected. Today, when we have been working with Corona for more than a year, we find that there are three types of reactions in this area – the first being wrong bravery, Corona. Nothing but a scam; enough for Corona, I don’t need a mask, there is also a life beyond Corona – we saw these feelings in some of our public and friends, “said Luv Agarwal.
He also said that those who feel they are at risk for future use even after brief exposure to a Kovid-19 patient hoard Ramedesivir and oxygen cylinders at home.
Director, AIIMS-Delhi, Dr. Randeep Guleria appealed to the public to participate in the ‘Break the Chain’ movement to stop the human-to-human spread of the novel coronavirus infection. Dr. Guleria laid out a protocol for the treatment of mild or asymptomatic patients during a press conference on Friday.
The atmosphere of fear should be eliminated: Lav Agarwal
Love Aggarwal said that hospitals should ensure the facility of audio or video calls between Kovid-19 patients and their families. Hospitals should have a facility for attendants, allowing patients to talk to the attendants, Aggarwal said. The Joint Secretary (MoHFW) said, “We have requested that the atmosphere of fear should be eradicated.”
Emphasizing control and monitoring, Agarwal said that this is the only effective strategy. Oxygen is being reviewed on a daily basis: MHA Piyush Goyal, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), said that there is enough liquid medical oxygen (LMO) stock in the country and it has been decided to import it.
Piyush Goyal said we are reviewing the allocation of medical oxygen quota to states / UTs. He said that the production of oxygen tankers is increasing, but states / UTs have been asked to reuse 50 percent of their nitrogen and argon tankers to transport medical oxygen.
The MHA official said that a 24/7 control room has been set up to coordinate with the states to ensure that no hospital suffers a shortage of medical oxygen. Railways, Indian Air Force have also been boarded to facilitate smooth supply.
