CM Yogi announces free post-Covid medical care

Sunday, 16 May 2021 | Pioneer News Service | Lucknow




Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced on Saturday that the treatment of patients for post-Covid complications will be free in the state. The CM said the patients who have tested negative but still need post-Covid care should be provided with the same medical care as Covid patients.
“Many patients who have recovered from COVID-19 still require periodic monitoring and medical assistance. Post-Covid care and treatment is also important. Upon careful assessment of their medical condition and based on the intensity of the care required, such patients must be assigned beds with requisite oxygen availability in L-1 hospitals,” the CM said while addressing a high-level Covid review meeting on Saturday evening.
According to an official communique, Uttar Pradesh has witnessed significant improvement with the aggressive T3 (test, trace and treat) mechanism of the CM. The active Covid cases have shown a steep decline in the last fortnight. The active cases have come down from 3,10,784 on April 30 to 1,77, 643 at present.
With daily recoveries consistently improving, more than 14,14,259 patients have defeated the deadly virus even as the state’s recovery rate has now gone up to 88%. A total of 12,547 new cases were recorded in the last 24 hours, the lowest in 15 days, while the recovery figures stood at 28,404.
To break the transmission chain, over 2,56,755 Covid tests have been conducted in the last 24 hours, of which 1,12,000 were RT-PCR tests. UP is the first state to have conducted 4,44,27,447 tests.
