Patiala, May 2

Amid the grim Covid situation, there is a good news. Of 26,510 positive patients placed under home isolation in the district, 22,647 patients have recovered from the infection.

The Civil Surgeon, Dr Satinder Singh, said around 26, 510 patients had been advised to be under home isolation, of whom 98 per cent had recovered with the help of medical advice given to them from dedicated health experts over the phone.

The patients under home isolation were monitored by our medical teams to win the fight against the pandemic. The teams kept a regular check on the vital signs of the patients, said Dr Satinder Singh.

“The patients with mild symptoms need not to be admitted to hospitals and such patients can opt for home isolation even at the time of testing,” he said.

The Civil Surgeon said rapid response teams had been constituted in every block covering all towns and villages for the care of patients under home isolation. He said if the condition of a patient deteriorated and severe symptoms appeared, then he or she would immediately be shifted to health centres. A 24x7 helpline (104) has been specifically set up to provide help regarding symptoms, testing or admission of Covid-19 patients to the nearest health facilities. — TNS
