Effective steps by administration to curb Covid in UP

In the last few weeks, the Uttar Pradesh administration took several steps to curb the rise of Covid-19 infection in the state. The state announced that the patients in home isolation would also get oxygen support if needed. The decision was aimed to reduce the pressure on the hospitals for moderate cases that can be managed at home with oxygen support. Several oxygen plants are being set up in the state which will not only help the hospitals to get oxygen in time but will also prepare the state for any future calamity. The corporate sector has also come forward to provide as much support to the government as possible. The sugar mills are also producing medical oxygen to match the requirement in the state.

As there was a rise in cases in rural areas, the state government took immediate corrective steps to curb the spread. The main emphasis is on preventive measures and vaccination drives. The village Nigrani Samiti in all the Gram Panchayats has been formulated which focuses on promoting cleanliness. Safai Karmacharis have been hired in every village for regular cleaning, fogging, mopping. In fact, the global health body WHO has also lauded the Yogi Government’s initiative of house-to-house active case finding of Covid-19 in rural areas to contain Covid-19 by testing people with symptoms, disease management, and contact tracing.
