In the new revised plan for fighting the coronavirus outbreak, Delhi government has come up 8 pointers to follow. One of them is to do house to house screening by the 6th of July.
Delhi is one of the worst affected states in the country with around 66,602 confirmed cases and over 2,000 deaths. The Delhi government has come up with an eight point Revised covid-19 plan. This plan was made with recommendations from Dr. VK Paul committee.
Apart from House to house screening this plan also includes conduction of a sero-survey of 20,000 people across districts among various other measures.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah has given an order which requires a Covid-19 patient who had tested positive through the real-time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test - to be taken to a Covid-19 Care Centre (CCC) for a clinical diagnosis of the viral infection symptoms.
Earlier on Wednesday, Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia has written to Amit Shah to roll back the order. He also mentioned that it is not about Amit Shah Model versus Arvind Kejriwal model of fighting coronavirus. He said that only to ensure minimum inconvenience to the public and also to the personnel at administration machinery who have been fighting against Covid-19. This order will over burden them, Sisodia said in a virtual briefing.
As the cases and death in the national capital have been increasing, CM has announced that pulse oximeters to measure oxygen levels will be provided to those under self-isolation. He also mentioned that you can return those meters back to the government once you are well. Not just that everyone in home isolation will be provided with a number which they can call if the oxygen levels drop or if there is any kind off Covid related emergency.
