Covid-19: The country is witnessing a steady increase in cases of COVID every day. More than three and a half lakh cases have been reported in India.

Joint Secretary (Ministry of Health) Luv Aggarwal said, ‘At present, 82% of corona cases in the country have been cured. About 16.25% of the cases i.e. 28,13,658 cases are still in view of active cases. Which is being monitored. ‘ He further said that there are some states where the number of active cases remains high.

At the same time, the Additional Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs said, ‘India is getting oxygen tankers from abroad both on purchase and rent basis. The transport of oxygen tankers is a major challenge. Using real-time tracking, we are monitoring the movement of oxygen tankers. ‘
AIIMS director Randeep Guleria said, ‘Whatever comes to COVID-19 positive, it gets panic that somewhere I do not need oxygen and hospitalization later, so I get admitted now. This causes a lot of congestion outside hospitals and real patients are unable to get treatment. ‘ He further said that we have to reduce the number of cases and make better use of the resources of the hospital. Judicious use of oxygen is very important. At the moment, there is an unnecessary panic.
Additional Secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs said that the production of medical oxygen has increased. Our oxygen production capacity is 7,259 metric tons and on April 24, 9,103 metric tons of oxygen has been produced.
Health Member (NITI Aayog) Dr. VK Paul said, ‘We cannot allow the speed of COVID19 vaccination to decrease due to the emerging situation. In fact, vaccination should be increased. ‘ He further said that questions are being asked whether women should be vaccinated during menstruation or not. The answer is yes, vaccines can be taken during periods. This is not a reason to postpone vaccination.
