Bengaluru/UNI: Former Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy has given ten tips to the government to curb surge in Covid cases and death across the state.
There is a need for everyone to think about new ideas, new opportunities, how to prevent covid and how to escape it, he said.
The former Chief Minister of Karnataka gave following tips to the government - Establishing fever clinics in each ward and village panchayat level.
Non-medical teaching staff and staff of the 'National Health Mission' should be assigned to the covid control system. Their services should be utilised in hospitals and Covid care centers where there is a lack of staff.
AYUSH colleges and hospitals in the state should treat covid patients who have no or minimal symptoms of infection. If they provide health care with the help of available staff, they can reduce the pressure on other hospitals. Health care for all. Medical colleges and hospitals should transform hotels into non-infectious care centers. Only those with serious health problems should be referred to hospitals for further treatment.
Only the clinics and staff providing health care at the ward and village panchayat level should recommend the war rooms for bed. They should be given the authority and responsibility to provide the bed. Data entry operators should not decide whether to provide a bed.
The IAS and KAS rank officers shall be appointed to oversee the management of all medical colleges and hospitals. They must handle the patient bed, medicine, care, food supply system. At the same time, the needs of health care staff, including physicians working in hospitals, must be met.
The officer assigned to a particular hospital must be informed that the representative must visit the hospital of his responsibility. Authorities should focus on the needs of patients and the medical staff of the hospital. The government should be able to provide problem-solving authority, accountability and resources.
The government should call on young people and volunteers to come to the aid of the sick system, which is struggling against covid and fighting for the lives of civilians. In addition to their service, the government should encourage their thinking to be useful in fighting covid.
The vaccine should also be made available at fever clinics. And, the program should start from now onwards to raise awareness that the vaccine can control Covid-19.
