The state government will launch ‘Him Suraksha’, an active case finding campaign, from November 25. Health workers will go door-to-door to identify people having the symptoms of Covid, tuberculosis, leprosy and non-communicable diseases such as sugar and blood pressure, and provide appropriate treatment.

He said it was being ensured that all facilities were made available to those in home isolation. “At the time of sending a person to home isolation, a kit containing all required medicines and a pulse oximeter are being provided," the official said.

Awasthi said ventilators were available in appropriate quantity and had been installed in various hospitals as per the requirement. At present, out of a total of 6,381 active Covid patients in the state, 5,673 are in home isolation.
