Quarantine centre nodal officer & doctor suspended after youth’s suicide
CM stresses on measures to bring about behavioural change in public
Following the recent suicide of a youth at a quarantine centre in Dehradun, chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat ordered the immediate suspension of the centre’s nodal officer and doctor concerned in addition to ordering an inquiry into the incident. He said that the audit of every death related to Covid-19 must be conducted. The chief minister said this while chairing a video conference with district magistrates to review the Covid-19 situation in the state on Saturday.
Rawat directed that surveillance be increased with the help of Asha and Anganwadi workers. Those who display symptoms associated with Covid-19 during surveillance should be mandatorily sampled. As required, frontline workers should be provided thermal scanner, face shield, PPE kit, mask and other essentials. Face shields should also be provided to doctors working in OPD.
The CM said that considering the present conditions, some behavioural changes will have to be brought in the public. An IEC programme should be conducted for this. The habit of physical distancing, mandatory use of mask, regular washing of hands and other precautionary measures will have to be formed. Crowding at one place in the market should be controlled strictly, he added.
Directing the suspension of the quarantine centre nodal officer and doctor concerned following the suicide of a youth at the centre, the CM also ordered an inquiry. He further directed that a probe also be conducted into the death of a pregnant woman who was unable to receive treatment in Dehradun. Special attention should be paid to the elderly, pregnant women, children and those afflicted by serious ailments. Stressing on ascertaining the cause of every death connected to Covid-19, he said that surveillance should be considered lacking if a person dies within 24 hours of being found positive. The responsibility of the district magistrate should be ascertained.
Rawat also stressed that the public should be informed about the government guidelines to prevent any dispute regarding the last rites of the Covid-19 positive patients who expire. The dignity of the person should be maintained even after death. In addition to announcing construction of an electric crematorium in Dehradun, the CM also directed officials to start work on electric crematoriums in Haldwani and Haridwar.
