With the rapid trials of more than 30 million people, India has set another example. The total number of people recovering from COVID-19 (20,37,870) has crossed 2 million today.
Apart from this, another achievement has been recorded in the last 24 hours in a single day, so far more than 60,091 people recover. With such a large number of COVID-19 patients being cured and discharged from segregation in hospitals and homes (in mild and moderate cases of illness), the cure rate has crossed 73% (73.64%). is. This has also led to a drop in the case fatality rate, which is today at an all-time low of 1.91%.
The record number of COVID-19 cures has ensured that the actual burden of the disease has come down on the country i.e. the number of active cases has decreased and it is currently one-fourth of the total positive cases (only 24.45%). Is less than? The greater number of people recovering from this disease and the decreasing number of deaths suggest that India’s gradual strategy has been successful. The number of recoveries is 13,61,356 more than the active cases (6,76,514) of COVID-19 in India.
Beginning in January 2020, the Indian government has pursued a gradual, proactive response and management strategy for COVID-19 in the country with hard work. A focused, cooperative and ‘whole government’ approach to the COVID-19 transition has led to success.
With a vision of continuity of care, the policy of rapid and large scale testing, comprehensive monitoring and efficient treatment has been carried out by the Center and implemented in conjunction with the State / UT Governments. Focusing on effective surveillance and door-to-door infection detection, COVID-19 cases were quickly detected and identified.
Patients with mild and moderate cases of COVID-19 are treated at home under ablation. According to a standardized clinical management protocol based on a holistic standard of care approach, acute and very serious patients are hospitalized and provide the best medical care.
The Government of India, along with the efforts of the State / Union Territory Governments, has improved the care infrastructure in hospitals across the country to provide dedicated COVID Care Centers (DCCC), Dedicated COVID Health Centers (DCHC) and Dedicated COVID Hospitals (DCH) ) To ensure medical care to patients of various categories of positive cases of COVID-19. Their number has also increased significantly.
Today there are 1667 DCH, 3455 DCHC and 11,597 DCCC. All these have 15,45,206 isolation beds, 2,03,959 oxygen-rich beds and 53,040 ICU beds.
Spontaneous and point-to-point treatment of COVID-19 patients has been made possible through the use of non-invasive oxygen with immediate available effective ambulance services and with the use of investigational therapy. AIIMS, New Delhi, through its tele-counselling sessions, has helped in building up the diagnostic capacity of doctors in the States / Union Territories. Through this unique initiative, AIIMS, New Delhi’s Specialist Physicians provide expert guidance and knowledge to doctors working in ICUs in state hospitals, aimed at reducing mortality.
The contribution of ASHAs, an integral part of these efforts in the States / Union Territories, has also been notable. As part of the team that looks for active cases of the disease, ASHA personnel have been vigorously monitoring and detecting infections and monitoring patients during isolation at home. He has been instrumental in taking serious patients to hospitals for timely treatment. He has assisted communities in spreading awareness about prevention and control measures of COVID-19 and has helped the needy to access health services.
