The possibility of Corona reaching the third phase deepens, ICMR will release new guidelines tomorrow
In some areas in India, the chance of Corona reaching community transmission ie, step three, has increased.
In particular, the government is considering adopting a new strategy for prevention after the Tablighi Jamaat population has spread to many areas of the country and new corona patients are exposed.
Under this, a large number of corona tests can be started for people in hotspots with a large number of corona patients. For this, ICMR will release new guidelines on Friday.
As part of the new strategy, people will be approached from house to house in areas prone to government community transmission. In these areas, people with corona symptoms can be examined as well as samples of ordinary people on a large scale.
So that it can be found out how much has coronavirus spread there, the senior official said that in view of the new situation, the guidelines of the corona virus test are being changed.
According to the ICMR guidelines, until now, only the emergence of corona symptoms was allowed to examine the patients, but now it can be relaxed. The ICMR is working on preparing a new guideline, which will tell which people can be tested. ICMR doctor Raman Gangakhedkar said that new guidelines would be issued on Friday.
Some areas of the country became Corona’s hotspots
Describing the strategy as successful so far in preventing the spread of the Coronavirus, a senior Health Ministry official said that a week after the lockdown, some areas of the country have emerged as corona hotspots.
Among them, a large number of coronaviruses infected have been found positive in many places of the country like Mumbai and some areas of Delhi and hundreds of people have been kept in isolation there.
Since these people living with Corona were roaming in these areas openly for a long time, there is an increased possibility of Corona spreading in a large population here.
The problem is that even in such areas, it may take several days for the people to get symptoms of the disease despite being affected by the Coronavirus, till then, the possibility of the virus spreading to many others cannot be ruled out.
Although the possibility of going out of the said area is less due to the lockdown, but it can reach many people while carrying everyday necessities.
Lockdown implemented in India even before community transmission reaches phase
This phase of inadvertently reaching the corona virus to the people is called the phase of community transmission.
After this, the virus takes the form of the epidemic; it has destroyed many countries of the world, including Italy, Spain, America. After which these countries had to enforce the lockdown under compulsion.
The senior official said that it is suitable for India that the lockdown was implemented here even before the community transmission reached the phase. That is why it will be helpful to keep it confined to the hotspots of the coronavirus. But the apprehension has increased.
