Daily more than two thousand patients, 14 thousand tests
Navi Mumbai: Thursday became the record of the highest number of daily patients in the Corona period. The second wave of Corona had 1441 patients on April 4, 2021. As many as 2,000 patients were found daily in the city on Thursday. As a result, the number of patients undergoing treatment in the city has increased to more than five thousand.
The number of corona patients is increasing in the city and the municipal administration is also shaken as the number of patients is exploding. With all the predictions of the future now falling short, there is a possibility of increasing health facilities and there will be a shortage of manpower. Therefore, the administration has started the recruitment process for more than sixteen hundred health workers. The only relief was the need for oxygen and life-saving systems in the second wave, with patients with severe symptoms. So there were more patients actually receiving treatment. Also, a patient in a simple bed or a patient in isolation at home needed oxygen and life-saving systems at the right time. This led to a major crisis. Most patients are asymptomatic at this time.
On December 6 last month, the daily number of patients in the city was only 23. On December 28, it was 83 and the number of patients under treatment was 560. In the last ten days, 6662 patients have been added. As many as 2151 new patients were found daily on Thursday and the number of patients undergoing treatment has gone up to 6758.
The number of patients in the city has been increasing daily for the last ten days. Within a month, the condition of the corona in the city has changed and the daily number of patients has gone up to 2,000 patients a day. Therefore, the municipal administration has also increased the number of corona tests and 15 thousand corona tests are being done daily. Corona infection is on the rise and the municipality has once again put all the systems in operation, putting a huge strain on the municipal administration.
The number of patients undergoing treatment is expected to reach 25,000 in the near future. Therefore, on the one hand, the number of sick beds is being increased and the corporation also needs additional coroners. Asymptomatic patients are becoming carriers of corona. Hence the emphasis on tests.
