In just two weeks of launching the house-to-house fever surveys and special fever outpatient services at all government healthcare facilities in Telangana, field level workers from multiple government departments have covered a staggering 1 crore households and identified over 5 lakh individuals with Covid-like symptoms and distributed isolation medicine kits.

Launched on January 21, the field level workers of health and other government departments have so far visited 1,21,36,778 households and in the process have identified a total of 5,25,853 individuals with Covid symptoms, who were immediately given treatment, handed over special medical kits and advised to remain in isolation.

In the fever outpatient services, which are being simultaneously held in government hospitals across Telangana, so far authorities have conducted a whopping 10 lakh

consultations and have provided treatment to over 1,34,716 individuals who were identified with Covid-19 symptoms.

The fever and door-to-door surveys, which do not require conducting RT-PCR or rapid antigen tests to confirm Covid-19 status of patients, have enabled authorities to quickly identify people with symptoms, provide them with special treatment kits and isolate them in their homes.

The first round of the door-to-door survey is already over in several districts of Telangana and to further strengthen the containment measures, second round of fever surveys and special OPS are being taken up across Telangana.

Senior health officials said that like the Delta drive wave, the fever survey has also enabled the health department to identify individuals with minor illnesses, which has enabled them to provide appropriate timely treatment.
