Cases of the novel variation Omicron of Kovid 19 are fast increasing in every country on the planet. In 14 Indian states, the number of people infected with Omicron has surpassed 200. Due to an increase in Omicron variant instances, the lockdown and Kovid limitations are once again being discussed. Meanwhile, the federal government has written a letter to the states and union territories expressing concern over the rising number of Omicron cases and instructing them to implement rigorous anti-infection measures. In this communication, the Center describes Omicron as three times more infectious than the delta form and advises state governments to activate their Kovid war rooms. Other than that, The Center has told the states to keep a watch on any new information about Corona and to take immediate action at the local and district levels. The Kovid protocol and limits are likely to be reinstated in the letter from the Center. Instructions on marriage, meetings, and confinement zones have been published anew, as they were last year. In the letter published by the Central Government on the Covid Guidelines, what directives were given to the states and union territories?
Corona directives from the central government
Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan addressed a letter to the states on behalf of the national government, in which various orders were given to stop the corona. In each of these,
Corona testing and surveillance have been ordered to be increased in all states.
The Center has encouraged state governments to ensure that their states are fully vaccinated.
In order to control the corona, orders were given to go door to door looking for sick people and testing them. The Center has also requested that the number of RT PCR testing be increased.
All state governments have been urged to boost the number of beds in hospitals, as well as the buffer stock of ambulances, oxygen, and medicines, due to the risk of a surge in the number of corona infections.
The Center has ordered the creation of new cluster containment zones. Establish buffer zones. In all of the clusters found here, samples should be sent for genome sequencing. Genome sequencing reveals which corona variation is present in the sample.
Is there going to be another ban in the country?
There are some such elements in the government’s directives that will allow the country to return to limits. Within these constraints,
The night curfew can be reinstated as before.
Large gatherings could be prohibited.
A wedding, reception, or funeral may have a limited number of guests.
Passengers arriving from abroad will be screened and monitored, according to the instructions.
Containment zones can be established at the district level to avoid infection at the local level, according to the guidelines. The Center has recommended that the Containment Zone be set, that infection cases be reviewed on a regular basis, and that required efforts be taken to improve hospital facilities.
–Emergency Operation Center and Covid War Room can be revived. Even though infection cases are low in a district, action at the district and local levels has been requested to reduce infection cases.
