A high level virtual meeting was chaired by Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan to engage with the district and State administration reporting higher COVID 19 mortality. The meeting was held to analyse factors driving high COVID-19 mortality in these districts and devise ways and means to reduce the mortality. These include 16 districts in Gujarat, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Telengana.
Apart from the higher case mortality, these districts account for 17 per cent of India’s active cases, high daily new cases, low tests per million, and high confirmation percentage. The districts were advised to ensure that the advisories, guidelines and clinical treatment protocols issued by the Health Ministry are adopted and effectively implemented to reduce the mortality among COVID-19 patients.
