Corona sampling graph dropped in Himachal
On the other hand, the government has called for a reply from the Chief Medical Officers (CMO) of the district for not increasing the sampling of Corona. After the completion of the target of the second dose of vaccination, the Himachal government had instructed the Chief Medical Officers to take more than 7 thousand samples.
Due to the apprehension of the Omicron variant, the Deputy Commissioners and the CMO were also asked to strictly follow the orders in the meeting, but tests of more than 6 thousand patients have not been done in the state. Now the reason will be asked from the officials in the meeting before the next cabinet meeting.
Omicron cases are being confirmed in India. In Himachal also seven and a half hundred people coming from abroad have been quarantined for 14 days. The Health Department is keeping a close watch on these people. However, the department claims that none of them have symptoms of the Omicron variant.
Those who have been quarantined for 14 days are being allowed to stay with the family. Their information is being taken from Panchayat Pradhan, ASHA and Anganwadi workers. The department has been asked to take samples of people returning from abroad and their relatives.
The CMO has been asked to take samples of more than 7 thousand people. The graph of sampling has dropped in the districts for the last four to five days. As such, the answer has been sought. Amitabh Awasthi, Health Secretary
