No Clear Information on Tests and Hospitals even as Cases Surge
Jun 18, 2020 —
As of 17 June 2020, we are over 2lakh strong. The voices demanding critical information to battle the pandemic need to get stronger as COVID stats for India show a disturbing surge with each passing day.
"The total number of coronavirus cases in India has doubled to nearly 355,000 since the beginning of this month, when the national lockdown was largely lifted, allowing most businesses to reopen and travel to resume."
"India has registered an average of more than 11,000 cases per day for the past week. Almost 12,000 people have died of COVID-19 in the country, which is now the fourth worst-affected country in the world, having overtaken the U.K., Spain, and Italy last week."
In the State capital, the Govt is converting train cars to serve as hospitals as COVID-19 cases surge. However, the Central Govt is still silent on providing critical information such as:
- . Nearest COVID hospital based on location
- . Total Number of beds
- . Beds reserved for COVID patients
- . Out the beds reserved, how many are available?
- . Protocol to be be followed
The situation is getting worse by the day and it is imperative that the govt, while reopening the economy, also disseminated essential information needed to survive these tough times.
For this, I request all of you to tweet the following:
"I am a citizen of India and I demand an All-India Centralised Online Database of Hospitals, Beds and COVID19 protocols for patients .@narendramodi .@PMOIndia .@NITIAayog .@drharshvardhan .@ChangeOrg_India change.org/centralcoviddatabase"
Together we are stronger.
Love and Light
