Amidst the increasing cases of corona, on Monday, Health Minister Satyendar Jain of Delhi Government said that the number of corona testing has been increased and more than 80 thousand tests are being done daily. He said that 5 times more corona tests are being done in the country every day than in Delhi. Also said that wherever there are more than 2 corona infection cases, micro containment zones will be made in Delhi.
The Delhi government’s health minister said that 4,033 corona infection cases were reported inside Delhi on Sunday. The cases of corona infection inside Delhi are increasing at a rate of 4.64 percent. On Monday, more than 1 lakh corona infection cases have been reported in the whole country, which is the highest figure till date. He said that we can stop this infection only by following the rules of Corona.
Satyendra Jain said that 99,000 cases were reported during the last wave of corona infection, but this time more than one lakh people have been found infected, which is the highest ever. Mortality rate is very low compared to the case of corona infection. The death rate due to corona in Delhi is 1.64 per cent and in the whole country it is close to 1.50 per cent, but it is unfortunate to have even a single death. This time wave has less number of seriously ill people than all previous waves of corona infection. Although the fourth wave of Corona is going on in Delhi.
86,899 Tests held in Delhi on Sunday
The Health Minister further said that we are doing more than 80 thousand tests every day. During this, 86,899 tests were conducted on the whole of Delhi on Sunday. Along with this, random testing is also being done within the entire city to detect infection quickly. Within Delhi, 5 times more testing is being done daily than in the entire country. Micro containment zones are being built inside Delhi to prevent the corona epidemic. If 2-3 infected patients are found at the same place, that place will be made a containment zone. This step being taken by the Delhi government will go a long way in stopping the corona epidemic and the infected persons will be found soon and their treatment will be ensured.
Satyendra Jain said that many steps are being taken by the government to prevent the corona epidemic. 80 to 90 thousand tests are being done daily by the Delhi government. Also, infected persons are being identified and isolated. Home isolation facility is being provided to patients with common symptoms and severely infected patients are being provided with isolation facility in hospitals. Also, 30 contacts of infected persons are being found and their corona investigation is being done, so that the epidemic can be prevented from spreading further.
Appeal regarding plasma donation
Regarding plasma donation, he said that for the last few months, the rate of corona infection in Delhi was low, due to which less people are eligible to donate plasma, that is why I appeal to all those who are eligible to donate corona. They should come forward and donate plasma to the people. Satyendra Jain said that we should leave the investigation of variants of corona virus to the scientists. It is believed that this variant is less serious, but spreads much faster. The genome has been sent to the central lab to detect variants of the corona virus.
The Health Minister of Delhi instructed the people to follow the rules of wearing masks and protection against corona and also to take strict action against those who do not follow the rules.
