Those flouting COVID-related rules will be admitted to private hospitals: Rajesh Tope

As the number of COVID-19 patients in the state has been increasing rapidly, the state government has imposed strict restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus.

Moreover, there is a shortage of beds, many patients with mild symptoms or asymptomatic patients have been asked to stay in home isolation. However, it has been observed that patients who have been advised to do home quarantine are seen walking outside.

Therefore, if such patients do not follow the rules, we will admit them to a private hospital and they will have to bear the cost, warned Health Minister Rajesh Tope.

The Health Minister interacted with the State Health Directors, Joint Directors, Divisional Deputy Directors, District Surgeons, District Health Officers, Taluka Health Officers through a televised system. In addition, the principal secretary of the health department, Dr Pradeep Vyas, Commissioner Dr Ramaswamy, Director Dr Archana Patil, Dr Sadhana Tayde, etc. were present at this time.

Rajesh Tope also stated that given the growing number of coronavirus cases in the state, the number of beds in government health institutions should be increased. Moreover, it should be mandatory for private hospital covid centres to emphasize the need to build a system to produce oxygen from the atmosphere. In addition, emphasis should be placed on institutional quarantine rather than home quarantine of positive patients. He also directed the state health department to increase the number of RTPCR tests in the districts.

Also, the technology that absorbs oxygen from the atmosphere and gives it to the patients is being used at present and efforts should be made to install such devices in every district.
