Coronavirus ramping up in other countries
Korea has had 264 cases in last few days. If by mistake this thing enters India, it will be very very hard to control it so best to let it not enter. more
We need to act IMMEDIATELY already we have lost time and treated this lightly. more
Still, this virus has the NATURAL capacity and capability to enter our borders through infection borne foods including meat, fish and dairy products .
Hence, all necessary steps must be put in place in EACH and EVERY HOSPITAL especially GOVT HOSPITAL to have an ISOLATION ROOM with MINIMUM 5 -10 Beds in all areas across our country . Such preparations will go a long way in further improving the healthcare system of our nation.
Let me also thank the GOVT OF KERALA for establishing INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS AND SYSTEMS IN HEALTHCARE throughout every district in this State. In 2018 at Kozhikode, there was a outbreak of NIPAH VIRUS epidemic from infected bats . This is a far more dangerous epidemic than COVID-19 since its Mortality Rate is over 80 % . There was about 15 deaths, but the outbreak was controlled. Two infected NIPAH patients were treated back to health. In 2019, there was just ONE Case, which was also controlled and treated.
And who said COVID -19 has NOT come to India ??? THREE INFECTED PATIENTS who arrived in INDIA from WUHAN before 22 Jan 2020, were identified, isolated and treated at THRISSUR, KANGHANGAD and ALLAPUZHA GOVT HOSPITALS in their ISOLATION WARD/ ROOMS. Today, KERALA is both NIPAH and COVID -19 free . Hence, uplifting our healthcare system and practices to INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS is the need of the hour ! I would add the BLAME GAMES in healthcare will NOT lead us anywhere. Also, spending FINANCIAL resources by conducting POOJAS, YAGNAS and RITUAL will have no effect, since over 20 Million Indians ( including present day Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh ) lost their lives due to SPANISH FLU of SEPTEMBER 1918 in less than 6 months with a Mortality Rate of about 6 % . Do you know MAHATMA GANDHI was infected and sick with Spanish Flu in 1918, for about 2 weeks, but recovered from this pandemiic ??? more
