In Sushila Tiwari Hospital of Haldwani, 291 beds out of 370 oxygen beds are full, while all 55 beds of ICU are full.Sample backlog is created
There are currently more than 33 thousand active cases in Uttarakhand. More than fifty per cent of these people are in Home Isolation. Samples are being taken between thirty thousand to forty thousand in the state every day. There is also a lot of pressure on the labs testing the corona. As a result, a backlog of more than 22 thousand samples remains.
Infection rates have risen to 29 and 28 percent
However, given the way that Kovid’s patients are getting at a higher level, there is a need to increase the capacity of the corona testing labs along with increasing the volume of tests. Social activist Anoop Nautiyal, who has been continuously studying the Corona figures for a long time, says that in Uttarakhand, there are still not a thousand tests on a population of one lakh. Pithoragarh, Almora, US Nagar, Tehri, Nainital, Bageshwar, Chamoli, Champawat, Rudraprayag, Pauri, Uttarkashi Jains districts have very poor performance. Here about 48 to 127 tests are being done daily on a population of one lakh, which is inadequate. In Pauri and Tehri Janse districts, the infection rate has reached 29 and 28 per cent in the last three days.
