Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has directed officials to keep the entire health infrastructure battle-ready to face the emerging situation due to the rise of Covid-19 cases and increasing total positive Rate (TPR) since the last five days in Odisha.
According to the reports, Odisha CM Patnaik took a review of the preparedness for the impending third wave of the pandemic and directed the officials to prepare all Covid hospitals fully ready within 10 days. He gave clear instructions to arrange beds, critical care units in line with the highest level of medical emergency protocol followed during the second wave of the pandemic last year.
Further he also directed the officials to calibrate restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus cases while maintaining care in order not to disrupt the livelihood of people. He also urged people to religiously adhere to all necessary Covid-19 protocols like wearing of masks, regular hand sanitisation regularly.
Health Director Bijay Mohapatra stated that right now Covid-19 is witnessing an upward surge in the State. Considering the rising number of cases in the neighbouring States, it is most likely that Odisha too will witness more cases in the near future. The first and the second wave picked up late in the State. Hence, people have to be fully cautious and strictly adhere to the Covid-19 appropriate behaviour. We have a collective responsibility to keep the third wave under control. The state government is fully prepared to meet any kind of eventualities arising out of the emerging situation. New Covid-19 guidelines will be issued accordingly.
