In view of the third wave of corona virus and Omicron variants, the Union Health Ministry has changed the guidelines for home isolation. In the last 9 days, the cases of corona in the country have increased more than 6 times, the doubling rate of Omicron is 3 days. This decision has been taken after increasing the cases of corona in the country.
The government’s concern has increased due to the tremendous jump in corona cases in the country. It is being told that in this new wave, the government is also worried that the devastation caused by the Delta variant in India was not as much in South Africa.
Similarly, Omicron is not seeing much effect in South Africa, so the concern is what effect the Omicron variant will have in India. If the number of corona cases increases, then hospital admissions will also increase, because the number of people suffering from other serious diseases in India is very high.
Also, sources said, states have been asked to keep the control room in order to effectively implement the new guideline of home isolation. So that the state can monitor the patient properly and if the patient’s health deteriorates, he needs to be admitted to the hospital from home isolation, then from ambulance, testing to hospital beds can be easily available.
