Current status on India’s fight against coronavirus.
World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak as a very serious problem and asked all the countries to take immediate action according to the situation. WHO also suggested the counties to buckle up their medical services to detect the disease and treat people to save people’s life.
After WHO called for countries to take immediate action after the Novel Coronavirus outbreak, Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi imposed a lockdown in the country. The lockdown was imposed after seeing the rapid spread of the disease worldwide and to reduce the number of positive cases in India.
The lockdown has helped the Indian citizens to transmit the disease on a very slow scale but despite the lockdown, the toll of positive cases in India has crossed the 800 mark.
As of March 28, a total of 873 positive COVID-19 cases have come in light which includes 47 foreigners and the other 826 Indians. Out of these 873 cases, 78 cases have been resolved and the people are now safe and don’t have coronavirus now. Also, the death toll has also risen to 19 in total, as reported by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW). The patients with the confirmed cases have been isolated are improving with a change in diet and consumption of hot water. Also, home quarantine is working well and has helped in reducing the cases to a wide extend.
India, however, is standing at a very important stage in its fight against coronavirus as India can be a turning point in this war-like situation. As Novel Coronavirus is a respiratory disease and is transmitted through human contact, the Prime Minister has taken a very bold decision of lockdown to break the transmission chain. Supporting India, WHO stands together in solidarity with India and its people and is committed to providing all the support that is needed.
