The increasing cases of corona in the world including China have worried the central government.

The increasing cases of corona in the world including China have worried the central government. In the latest advisory, the central government has asked the states to ensure adequate oxygen supply. The central government is constantly reviewing the fight against the coronavirus. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also warned on Thursday that the corona is not over yet. The epidemic is creating havoc in many countries including China. The government has made RT-PCR test mandatory for passengers coming from China, Thailand, South Korea and Japan.

Significantly, India has seen three waves of Corona. In the second wave that came last year, the increasing cases of corona worsened the condition of the hospitals. Lack of oxygen in almost every city of the country including New Delhi had broken the back of health services. In the new advisory, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan has said that all states should ensure the supply of oxygen. Also, keep the Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) ready. He said that at present the cases of corona are less in the country and they are not increasing at present.

Government should ensure the quantity of oxygen-

According to Health Secretary Bhushan, in the midst of the epidemic, the government has said that all states should keep oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders and its infrastructure ready. During this, care should be taken that it should not be reliable and expensive. Do state mock drills, resolve staffing issues and prioritize life support equipment. Before that, on Friday, the central government had told the states to ensure that the Covid guidelines are followed due to the celebration of Christmas and New Year.

Although the government has not made masks mandatory, the central government has not made masks mandatory, but has asked people to use them. Let me tell you, India's situation regarding Corona is much better than other countries. India is seeing the least number of corona cases after America. Whereas, Omicron's BF.7 variant has created an outcry in China.
