In order to contain the COVID widespread in the villages, the Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar, is to launch ‘Sanjeevani Pariyojana’, a supervised home healthcare initiative, today. The scheme aims to help people in villages having diagnosed with COVID or showing mild to moderate symptoms to access medical care at their doorstep without leaving their homes to visit hospitals.
As reported by a national daily, “The pilot project shall be rolled out in Karnal and will further be extended to other districts in the coming weeks. Sanjeevani Pariyojana focuses to provide medical care in rural areas, to spread awareness about the second wave of the COVID pandemic, and ways to treat it. As per the officials, home convalescence is possible for over 90 per cent of patients if the right procedures are followed and prescribed measures are taken.
According to sources, the Pariyojana aims t deliver an integrated command and control centre for effectively managing critical resources such as availability of hospital beds, adequate oxygen supply, tracking ambulance, and door-to-door awareness campaign. Besides, a helpline number – Covid hotline – will be made available which will augment call centre capabilities to provide basic training and guidance to COVID patients or those having suspicious mild to moderate symptoms. In addition, the State is planning to mobilise over 200 final year and pre-final year medical students, including interns, and connecting them to consultants and experts to expand the scope of medical advice beyond qualified doctors under the Sanjeevani Pariyojana.
