Collector Ravindra Thakare, on Tuesday, called for cooperation from people to prevent second wave of Covid-19 in the district. According to experts and analysts, the second wave is likely in November-December in case we fail to take precautions.
“Though the number of new patients is reducing constantly in the district, it’s not wise to be overconfident. Spread of the virus needs to be stopped. For this, people must participate spontaneously,” said Thakare. He was addressing an informal discussion with health reporters in Nagpur.
The collector also informed the media men about the latest facilities available for the citizens and appealed them not to neglect any symptom of Covid-19.
Thakare also said following the pandemic, Covid-19 facilities have been started not only in the city, but also in rural areas. “Health care system has been streamlined and complaints regarding non-availability of beds in hospitals, billing in private hospitals have gone down significantly,” he said.
Medical superintendent of GMCH Dr Avinash Gawande, ZP CEO Yogesh Kumbhejkar, and Nagpur University’s mass communication department head Moiz Mannan Haq were present on the occasion.
