Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur today laid stress on strengthening home isolation network for Covid-19 patients and providing immediate medical aid to those under treatment at their homes.

Thakur presided over a meeting to review the Covid-19 situation in the state with Deputy Commissioners, SPs and Chief Medical Officers virtually from here today. “There are total 3,076 active cases in the state. A sharp rise has been reported in the last one week,” he said.

He said at present 98 per cent patients were in home isolation. Thakur directed the officers to prepare for home isolation and sensitise the patients regarding do’s and don’ts during their isolation and taking medicines as per prescription of doctors.

The kit for the patients would have Chawanprash, ayush kada, hand sanitizer and face masks. “Proper arrangements should be made for isolation at homes and it should be ensured that family members do not get infected,” he said.

Thakur stressed the need for better coordination between allopathy and Ayush departments for the benefit of Covid patients. He said that vaccination campaign of 15 to 18 age group would be completed by January 12 and directed that proper arrangements of transportation of patients in home isolation must be made if their condition deteriorates.

He also directed the Deputy Commissioners to ensure early restoration of roads and power and drinking water supply, particularly in snow-bound areas. “Thrust must be laid on restoration of all major roads and the roads leading to health institutions. It must also be ensured that power supply, particularly in health institutions, be maintained at the earliest,” he said.
