Regarding China, it is feared that very soon the large population there will be in the grip again. In a letter to all states and union territories, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan has said that full attention should be paid to whole genome sequencing of positive samples to monitor emerging variants. With this, necessary steps can be taken to keep people safe from the virus. The five-pronged strategy of Test-Track-Treat-Vaccination and appropriate behavior to combat Covid has resulted in success in curbing this pandemic.
Said in the letter – Monitoring guidelines should be properly implemented
As a result in Concern, the infection of corona virus has been limited to 12 thousand cases on a weekly basis. But its danger in the world has not been completely averted. At present, 35 lakh cases have been reported in the world in a week. In the letter, the health secretary has referred to the guidelines for the revised process of surveillance issued by the ministry in June and stressed on its implementation. Accordingly, to meet the challenge of new variants, emphasis has been laid on early detection, isolation testing and proper management of suspected and positive cases.
According to Rajesh Bhushan in Concern, monitoring the trends of the current variant is very important. Significantly, with the changing weather, the complaints of cold and cough have increased, but it is believed to be of common flu and the number of testing has also decreased. A day before, Himachal Pradesh’s new CM Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu has been found to be Covid positive even without symptoms. In such a situation, everyone will need to be careful.
