Suggests that information about H1N1 and preventive measures should be provided during the morning assemblies in the schools.
After getting a severe battering on the front of dengue control, a beleaguered health department is now making advance preparation for control of swine flu. The chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat undertook a review of preparation of the department for the swine flu on Wednesday. In the meeting the senior officials of health department participated. The district magistrates and chief medical officers (CMO) of all the districts also attended the meeting of the CM via video conferencing.
In the meeting the CM categorically directed the officials to make advance preparation to tackle H1N1 influenza. He said awareness campaign should be initiated so that maximum people are informed about the ways to combat the menace of the disease. Rawat suggested that information about the disease and preventive measures should be provided during the morning assemblies in the schools. He said that apart from extensive awareness drive, the medicines of swine flu should also be made available in adequate numbers.
In the meeting the health department officials said that one should not get panicky on H1N1 as it is a type of normal flu. A very less percentage of persons affected by the disease are needed to be hospitalized. The medicines for the disease are also readily available. The health experts however added that the patients of diabetes, asthma and elderly should be extra cautious on swine flu. The patients of the disease should increase the intake of fluids and take nutritious diet. In the meeting CM also took stock of the health services in the state. He directed the department to provide him details of the doctors who are not absent from their duties for long. Laying stress on Tele medicine and Tele radiology, he said that maximum number of health centres should be linked with the facility of Tele medicine. He directed that the work on setting up ICUs in district hospitals should be expedited. Rawat said that the cases of high risk pregnancies should be taken care of and the target of 90 percent institutional deliveries should be achieved. In the meeting CM appreciated the work done by the Rudrparyag district in this direction. In the district the health workers are connected by the medium of an app called ‘Ma’. The high risk pregnancies are reported in this App and the doctors and other officers keep a track of the pregnant women. In this district hospital a six bed special ward is set up for such women. The CM said that the model adopted by Rurdraprayag should be emulated by other districts.
