While India has been battling the second wave of the pandemic, the Yogi Adityanath government has remained steadfast in its pursuit of containing the deadly virus from the very onset. In a recent order, the UP government directed that oxygen cylinders would be provided to all Covid-19 patients who were undergoing treatment at their homes. This was done to prevent fatalities caused due to the unavailability of oxygen cylinders for critical Coronavirus patients.
After learning that the main hurdle that stood in the way of uninterrupted oxygen supply in the state was the crippling oxygen delivery system, Yogi Adityanath decided to set up oxygen generation plants for the availability of oxygen in all the districts keeping in mind the future needs. The Uttar Pradesh CM has also been stepped up the ante in anticipation of the third wave of the Coronavirus pandemic. Given that the rural areas in the State are susceptible to Covid-19 spread, health workers have been directed to conduct door-to-door testing for early detection.
The Monitoring committees, constituted by Yogi Adityanath govt, are conducting more than one lakh tests in the rural areas of the state everyday. The monitoring committees, comprising of Asha, Anganwadi and ANM had been following the Yogi Adityanath Government’s mantra of ‘test, trace and treat’ against the novel coronavirus religiously. The UP government has recently launched ‘Mera gaon, Corona mukt gaon’ campaign to declare villages free from coronavirus infection.
Uttar Pradesh witnesses decline in active cases, recovery rate shoots high
As of May 23, Uttar Pradesh has recorded 94,482 active cases and a total of 18,978 fatalities. According to covid19india.org, the State is witnessing a decline in confirmed and active cases on a daily basis. While the recovery rate from Covid-19 stands at 93.2%, the case fatality ratio has been around 1.1%.
It is due to the mammoth task of mass testing, followed by rampant vaccination that the UP government has been able to trace and isolate Coronavirus-positive patients. The steps taken by Yogi Adityanth in containing the virus is now paying dividends as the second wave eases in the State and the number of active cases declines.
Yogi had recently said that he has instructed the administration to be prepared for third wave as the second wave continues to ease.
