ICMR said, Corona Infection Spreads More Than Coming Close!


Most cases of corona virus infection spread due to close contact.  In order to prevent infection, it is necessary to follow the provisions such as physical distance and cleanliness.

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) again emphasized this on Monday.

Detailed study done of 16 Italian tourists


Sharing the findings from the first case study of Corona infection among Italian tourists in the country, the ICMR said that more cases of infection were found in nearby people.

In this case, identifying close relatives, examining them and keeping patients found positive in isolation is very important to prevent its community transmission.

A detailed study was carried out between March-April on 16 Italian tourists initially found in India and an Indian corona infection.

This study of the ICMR has been published in the Indian Journal of Medical Research.  The ICMR stated that many of the patients found positive had no symptoms.

In this case, contact tracing is most important in stopping its spread.

Moving ahead after learning from swine flu


The ICMR said that taking lessons from the 2009 swine flu, the government adopted the Intelligent Testing Strategy this time and strengthened its preparedness in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Today, 1.1 million samples are being tested daily in 432 government and 178 private laboratories in the country.

The target is to increase the capacity of the investigation to two lakhs per day in the next few days.

Based on the information received from all over the world, the scope of investigation has been extended to those coming from abroad, migrant workers and warriors engaged in battle with Covid-19.

According to the increased requirements, more laboratories and testing machines are being installed in states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Bengal for testing.
