Bhubaneswar: “Every life is precious and we continue to do our best to save one life,” said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik. In a video conference today, the Chief Minister said that the state’s Kovid situation was a long one. So we all have to work responsibly to win this fight.
The Chief Minister said that if one infection is reduced, the pressure on one ICU and one bed is reduced. Thus relieving the pain of life and death. The state government continues to work to provide the best possible health care to Covid patients, and our doctors and health workers continue to work day and night. “It’s important that sanctions do not hurt the people,” said Tariq al-Hashimi, the party’s secretary general.
The Chief Minister said that the whole country is now going through a serious crisis. Health care in major cities and metros is under intense pressure. “With that in mind, we have to be vigilant to deal with the situation,” he said. Despite the increase in the number of infections, we continue to serve. But the situation in some districts has raised concerns. The double and triple mutants of the virus are spreading rapidly, and in this second wave our youth are particularly infected. The Chief Minister expressed concern that in some cases their health was in jeopardy.
“We need to be prepared to deal with the worst situations in the world, just as we have in dealing with natural disasters.” In this regard, the Chief Minister directed the district magistrates and SDPs to assess the situation at the grassroots level and formulate a flawless plan.
The chief minister also advised observers to be vigilant. He advised the Chief Minister and the Chief Secretary to review the matter on a regular basis and inform him at the next meeting.
The chief minister said it was welcome that trade associations in different districts had voluntarily stepped in to control the coffin, restricting business hours and closing shops in some places. Therefore, the Chief Minister advised us to work in partnership with all non-governmental organizations, trade unions and other group-based organizations to make our co-management program effective.
Oxygen is the most important ingredient in the treatment of cough. The Chief Minister also directed the Chief Minister to ensure that the supply of oxygen continues in an orderly manner and that adequate oxygen is delivered to the patient in a timely manner. In addition, the Chief Minister advised to stockpile essential medicines and make their supply system flawless.
This second wave of cowardice shows us that this crisis is long overdue and we must always be ready for it. So if we follow Covid’s rules properly, Covid’s defeat is certain. The Chief Minister stressed the need to take care of our frontline covid warriors who are faithfully providing services during this disaster.
He encouraged ordinary people as well to take part in solving this great task: “One of the things you and other people can do is keep up the pressure … there are going to be some difficult decisions for government”. Our doctors and health workers are working hard to save lives. “If we are all responsible, we will definitely win the Covid war,” he said.
Chief Secretary Shri Suresh Chandra Mohapatra said that as per the instructions of the Chief Minister, senior officials are keeping a close watch on the situation. Covid Care Centers have been operationalized and all Covid Hospitals have been operationalized. Steps are being taken to transform the number of beds in medical colleges into new private hospitals.
“Oxygen has been provided in 30 per cent of the beds and steps are being taken to increase it to 35 per cent,” he said. Neighboring states have a high number of cowboys, and people from all over the state are closely monitored. An Online Real-time Bed Management System will be implemented soon to streamline bed availability, he said.
Additional Chief Administrative Secretary, Department of Health, Shri P.K. In a presentation on the situation, Mohapatra Kovid said that there are currently 50,758 active cases in the state and 40 per cent of the active cases in nine districts. He said the state currently has a total of 31,61 beds and 14,45 beds apart from ICU beds.
He said steps were being taken to increase the number of beds in both public and private covid hospitals, as well as to provide more oxygen in beds. He said that 42.10 metric tonnes of oxygen was being used daily in the state and that all essential medicines, including Remdesivir and Favipiravir, were available.
Director General of Police Abhay Kovid briefed the police on the steps being taken and said that to date, 145.41 tonnes of oxygen has been sent to 70 states through 70 tanks. On the steps being taken in relation to fire control in various Covid hospitals
