Cases of corona infection are once again on the rise in the city. The city’s health department has begun to worry about this. It has been informed by the Ministry of Health that the cases of infection are increasing rapidly in the city, so as a precaution, containment zones should be created where needed and people should be made aware.
After the vaccine was introduced in the city to prevent infection, the government first decided to give it to health care workers for free. But the administration is also upset by their negative attitude. Health care workers and frontline workers are not coming forward to get vaccinated. Meanwhile, the jawans have given a message to all by vaccinating according to the target. The target was to vaccinate 160 personnel from 12 Wing Air Force stations on Monday. 160 workers set an example by getting vaccinated. Similarly, the target was to vaccinate 200 people of 3 BRD Air Force, out of which 199 were vaccinated. 33 ITBP personnel were to be vaccinated. 30 of them planted.
Health department teams at three locations in the city are examining suspected patients of corona infection for free. The team is investigating at the bus stand of Sector-17, Railway Station Chandigarh and Police Hospital of Sector-26 today. Teams from the health department used to check for suspected patients at five places in the city but since fewer patients with corona infection started coming, they are now checking at three places.
A dose of vaccine was to be given to 174 frontline workers at the city’s Civil Hospital Manimajra, but none of them came to get vaccinated. In Chandigarh, the target was to vaccinate 3,924 health care workers on Monday, but only 872 came. From this one can guess the condition of the vaccination program.
Cases of corona infection are increasing in the city. During the last 24 hours, 1446 suspected patients were tested in the city and 38 of them reported positive. The number of active patients in the city has now increased to 205. The report of 21 thousand 463 patients in the city has come positive out of which 20 thousand 908 patients have recovered. To date, 350 patients have died in the city due to corona infection.
The target was to administer the first dose of 870 at two PGI centers on Monday, but only 118 health workers came to administer the vaccine. The target was to vaccinate 81 workers in Hospital Sector-45, 70 vaccinated them. 502 were targeted to be vaccinated in GMSH-16. 490 health workers were to be vaccinated in GMCH-32.
