Jaipur, July 8 Health Minister Dr Raghu Sharma said with more tests being conducted per day the number of corona positive patients in the State has increased. He said that compared to last few days, there is decline in the mortality rate therefore general public need not have to be scared. People just lead their life being alert and vigilant, he added.
Dr Sharma said that on an average 15,000 tests were being done per day in the State till last week. The department is now conducting 20,000 tests per day. With more number of tests per day, there could be more number of positive cases. He said the intention of Chief Minister Shri Ashok Gehlot is that patient with serious diseases should be administered plasma therapy and the death rate in the State should remain low and no corona infected patient should die.
Health Minister said that expert teams are being sent to those districts where the infection is spreading fast. He said looking to the situation that has arisen in Alwar and Pali districts due to corona infection, a state-level team has been sent to prevent and control the infection. A state-level task force has been formed under the chairmanship of Dr Avtar Singh Dua, who will apprise the State Government by analysing the important data along with suggesting preventive measures.
Dr Sharma said that the department is planning to run a campaign to inspect people in home and institutional quarantine, so that there is complete monitoring of these people. He said the Government will leave no stone unturned to contain corona.
Health Minister said that carelessness of people is also the reason of spreading of infection. Few people feel that corona has ended and they have become careless. As the result corona is spreading fast in people coming in contact with them. He said the Government is repeatedly appealing the people that so far there is no medicine for corona and prevention is the only cure. He said the Government is appealing people to follow all the protocol of wearing mask, frequently wash hands with soap and avoid going in crowded place. Corona can be kept at bay only by the discipline of prevention and precaution.
