Monitoring in villages should continue in same vein: Yogi

Aiming to break the chain of infection and keep villages safe from corona infection, a massive trace, test, track and treat campaign is currently being conducted in more than 97,000 revenue villages in Uttar Pradesh.
“This campaign should be conducted with full readiness. Antigen test of every symptomatic person or suspect should be done and the number of RRTs increased,” Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said during his regular Team-9 meeting in Lucknow on Tuesday.
The CM said that monitoring committees are doing door-to-door visits in villages and screening people and are also providing medical kits to home isolated patients and others with symptoms.
“This system of medical kit distribution should be constantly monitored. Provide the name and phone number of the monitoring committees to the person who receives a medical kit so that at the time of exigency they could be contacted. Besides, a copy of this should be made available to the local public representatives through the District Magistrate so that MPs/MLAs can get medical kits and communicate with the people. This will also enable cross verification of the system. Every person with suspected symptoms must have an antigen test,” he added.
The CM said that in view the assessment of experts, special arrangements for protection of children need to be made in all districts.
“For this, paediatric ICUs with a capacity of a minimum of 10-15 beds in all district hospitals and 25-30 beds in medical colleges should be prepared. There should be a minimum 100-bed paediatric ICU at the divisional headquarters. Necessary medical equipment and medicine should be made available. Physicians and other staff should be trained in this regard. This work should be done fast,” he said.
Yogi said that ventilators and oxygen concentrates have been provided in all districts. “ACS, Health, and Principal Secretary, Medical Education, should ensure that these devices are operational in each case. Contact the districts concerned and get their problems resolved in this regard. If the ventilator or oxygen concentrator is not reported to be functional, then the accountability of the DM/CMO concerned will be fixed,” he instructed.
“Availability of all medicines considered as life-saving including Remdesivir is being ensured in the state. The Centre has also increased the daily allocation of Remdesivir for UP. In government Covid hospitals, this injection is completely free of cost. This is being made available to private hospitals by the DM/CMO as per requirement. All District Magistrates and CMOs should ensure that whenever a patient is given this injection, there is a doctor present along with the nursing staff. Complete details of the demand, supply, and consumption of this life-saving medicine should be maintained,” the CM said.
“Uttar Pradesh is the most vaccinated state with 1.39 crore doses being administered. Vaccination of the 18-44 age group is now being conducted in 18 districts. On May 10, around  50,157 people in this age group were inoculated. Thus, more than 1.66 lakh people aged 18 to 44 have been vaccinated in the state so far. Vaccine waste in this age group is also going down which is currently, it is 0.6 percent,” he said.
