Take rising Corona cases as a challenge: Chief Minister

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that the Corona cases are increasing day by day. Although most of them do not have to be admitted to the hospital, they are recovering in home isolation at home itself. Still, the rising Corona cases must be taken as a challenge. The Chief Minister said that to deal with Corona, all arrangements including home isolation, oxygen supply in hospitals, Covid Care Centers etc. should be kept up to date.

Chouhan was reviewing Corona control and related arrangements in the state from Mantralaya on Thursday. Public Health and Family Welfare Minister Prabhuram Choudhary, Medical Education Minister Vishwas Kailash Sarang, Chief Secretary Iqbal Singh Bains and officials were present.

While drawing attention to the Corona trend of different countries, states and Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Chouhan said that the cases of Corona in Madhya Pradesh are less as compared to other states. The Corona infected are recovering in ‘home isolation’. Only a few infected people need to be admitted to the hospital. Chief Minister Chouhan inquired about the situation of Corona in Ujjain district and the arrangements made by the administration. Ujjain Collector said that at present 92 people are Corona infected in the district and only 4 are being treated in the hospital.

Chouhan said that most of the Corona infected people do not need oxygen and advanced treatment. Arrangements should be made for them at the Covid Care Center. With this, the treatment of patients of other diseases will continue in the hospitals.

Additional Chief Secretary Shri Mohammad Suleman informed that at present there are 16 thousand 527 isolation beds, 27 thousand 645 oxygen support beds and 11 thousand 917 ICU/HDU beds. Regular monitoring of oxygen plants is being done. All oxygen plants are functional. Citizens are being requested to follow Corona guide lines.
