Expressing satisfaction over the arrangement of 78033 beds in L-1, L-2 and L-3 Covid hospitals, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath directed to upgrade this capacity to one lakh beds by the end of this month.
The Chief Minister, while reviewing the Lockdown arrangements in a high level meeting at his official residence here on Thursday, directed to nominate an officer of the level of additional director or joint director of health department in every district to assist the CMO. He asked to furnish the district-wise list of the officer to his office.
He instructed to maintain all proper arrangements in Covid hospitals and warned that no laxity will be tolerated with regards to cleanliness and other logistics. He said the doctors should take rounds frequently while availability of nurses and paramedics has to be ensured for regular checking of equipment. He also directed to maintain supply of PPE kits, N-95 masks, three layer masks, gloves, sanitiser, medicines, pulse oximeter and Infrared thermometers in every district.
The Chief Minister said that the anaesthesiologists and technicians should be trained in every district and nominated to look after operations of ventilators. While directing to make available the list of these nominated technicians to Chief Minister Office, he asked to ensure that all ventilators are in the working condition.
The Chief Minister said while every district should have testing lab on time-bound basis, the testing capacity should be raised to ten thousand per day. He said the patients admitted in the hospitals should be provided easily digestible food and drinking water. A system of regular communication with them should also be evolved.
He said that the medical infection is an important factor in the spread of Covid-19 hence an extensive and regular training for protection is required for medical personnel. In this regard, the Arogya Setu App could also be used which contained valuable information about PPE kits, N-95 masks and shifting of Covid positive patients.
The Chief Minister observed that the fight against Covid-19 has been against the invisible enemy but the concerted efforts have brought in good results. He exhorted upon to continue the fight against Covid-19 with the same team work and tenacity and asked the Commissioners and IGs, DMs and SPs and CMOs to continue to work in coordination and meet daily to prepare future strategy.
He also asked DMs and District Supply Officers to provide foodgrains to the needy people in their districts. The migrants being sent to home quarantine from quarantine centres should be provided ration kits, he instructed while asserting that no single person should be left hungry.
Asking to maintain cleanliness and security in quarantine centres and community kitchen, he said all needy ones shall be provided adequate and quality food.
The Chief Minister directed to make Lockdown successful with door step delivery system to be strengthened in containment zone. The Chief Minister said that the social distancing and avoidance of crowding has to be maintained. To ensure it police patrolling should be intensified. He said that PVR 112 may be roped in for patrolling on highways and expressway, while the foot-patrolling can be done in the markets. For traffic control, the services of PRD jawans and Ex-servicemen could be taken. He said that the downloading of mobile Apps ‘Arogya Setu’ and Ayush Kavach Covid’ should be widely publicised to make these successful.
He directed to take forward the provision of low-rent housing as envisaged in 20 lakh crore economic package announced by the Centre. He said this scheme would help migrant labourers in getting employment. He also asked to apprise his office of the sanitation work undertaken in rural and urban areas.
