Meghalaya: Shift to corona centres if no space for isolation, East Khasi Hills DC requests citizens
The Deputy Commissioner of East Khasi Hills (EKH) district of Meghalaya, Isawanda Laloo on Tuesday urged COVID-19 positive patients to isolate themselves in Corona Care Centres arranged by the government, in a situation where there is no space for home isolation.
"We’ve had a high number of brought-dead cases, and cases coming to hospital which are already very serious. Don’t ignore symptoms. Early detection can help prevent worsening of symptoms and further deterioration," the DC mentioned in a tweet.
The DC informed that the number of deaths reported in the East Khasi Hills District of Meghalaya is still a point of concern although the total number of cases in the district has been declining in the past few days.
"It is strongly advised that all positive persons or persons not tested, who experience symptoms "must" report their symptoms to 14410 or call in the notified War Room helplines, before symptoms get worse, so that they can be advised on proper medical treatment or be taken to an available facility to prevent worsening of symptoms and deterioration in condition," the DC mentioned in an advisory.
"The positive rate in EKH remains very high and hence the public are advised to continue to observe great care and follow preventive measures at all times to avoid getting affected," she said.
About 74 COVID-19 deaths were reported in the district last week, with an average of 10 deaths per day.
