BBMP Chief Commissioner Sri Gaurav Gupta, along with the concerned officials visited the Physical Triage Centre (PTC) at Urban Primary Health Centre in Vasanthanagar ward limits for inspection today.
Proper physical triage should be ensured for the persons visiting triage centre through walk-in and among them, the cases must be segregated- that is- only the persons who are really in need of hospital admission should be sent to hospital by bed blocking. Others must be advised of home isolation. Isolation kit should be provided to them. If they are uncomfortable with home isolation (due to proper space problem etc), then they should be sent to covid care centers, the Chief Commissioner instructed the officials.
Covid-19 cases in Shivajinagar constituency limits, testing at Primary Health Centers, testing by mobile teams, vaccinations and such issues should be monitored effectively, he said. Responding at the occasion, a personnel said, “a total of 118 covid 19 cases were registered at Shivajinagar constituency limits yesterday and all of the cases have been undergone tele triage. Among them, 10 persons had admitted to hospital in advance. 43 persons have been undergone physical triaging. Hospitalization will be done based on their health conditions.”
