These three states failing to deal with Corona, the teams sent from the center reported the flaws.
The second wave of Corona virus has seen the situation worsening throughout the country. Everyday a record number of corona cases are coming up. A few days ago the Central Government formed some teams and sent them to the worst affected districts of Corona. These central teams have returned after reviewing 50 districts in three states. Now the central government has pointed out the flaws in dealing with Corona in these three states.
In the beginning of the week, the central government in central Maharashtra, Punjab and Chhattisgarh have reported several flaws in the three state governments in dealing with Corona.
Overall, the teams toured 50 districts – including 30 in Maharashtra, 11 in Chhattisgarh and 9 in Punjab. Their reviews highlight a range of issues including lack of better use of health care facilities, lack of RT-PCR testing facilities, lack of health workers.
The central team stated that there was a great lack of adherence to Corona proper behavior in all three states. The Central Government has spoken about the shortcomings in the availability of corona virus testing, contact tracing, Containment Operation, Hospital Infrastructure. The problems are different in different districts of the three states. Somewhere the question is about the Containment Zone, somewhere about testing, in some places questions have been raised about the infrastructure of the hospital.
The test capacity in Maharashtra is very low, due to which the report of the test is coming in. Apart from this, there is a huge rush in hospitals in some districts. Talking about Chhattisgarh, the lack of RT-PCR testing was found here. Teams here reported lack of containment zones, apart from the lack of ambulance services including medicines, oxygen and infrastructure like Remedisvir and Heparin in the state.
Talking about Punjab, the teams from the center reported low rates of testing, lack of Kovid care centers and lack of dedicated hospital and healthcare staff.
