listen to the news
A boom is being seen in the cases of corona all over the world. Due to this, the Chandigarh administration has also increased the surveillance. Dharampal, advisor to the administrator, has ordered to increase the number of tests. In this, it has been said that whatever new cases come, do genome sequencing, so that the variant of corona virus can be detected.
Advisor Dharampal said that the people of Chandigarh need not fear but should be careful. Along with this, all the guidelines to prevent corona virus should be strictly followed. He told that the Ministry of Health has also issued several guidelines regarding the corona virus, which are being followed by the administration. Medicines and hospital beds are sufficient in Chandigarh, so people need not panic. The health department has also kept an eye on the positivity rate. Genome sequencing has been mandated to identify new variants so that the risk can be predicted, he said.
Number of active patients with Kovid infection in the city is zero
After many months in the city, the number of active patients along with the infection rate of corona remained zero on Wednesday. Significantly, the infection rate has remained at zero for almost one and a half months. The same number of active patients was between 2 to 4. On Wednesday, this figure came down to zero when two infected patients were discharged on completion of seven days. At the same time, the Health Department examined 116 people during 24 hours, out of which infection has not been confirmed in even one. Please inform that till now 98161 Kovid patients have been found in the city while 1181 patients have died.
The condition of the precation dose is still worrying
In view of the increasing danger of Kovid infection, the government is giving instructions to pay special attention to the precaution dose. In such a situation, the result of precoction dose in Chandigarh is very disappointing. At present, only 13.16 percent of the target population has got precoction dose, while precoction dose is being given free of cost in all government hospitals. Significantly, 846001 population of the city is to be given precoction dose. Out of which only 110941 people have got the third dose of vaccine.
Health department’s preparation tight
To deal with the corona infection, the health department has instructed all the government and private hospitals in the city, including the PGI, to reserve beds. They include beds with oxygen as well as ventilators.
