If corona symptoms are found in people coming to the hospital, they will be isolated at home. They will also be given an oximeter along with a medicine kit. The hospital administration will provide this kit for free. Positive individuals will be able to check the oxygen level along with taking drugs during isolation at home.

If someone’s oxygen level goes above 90 percent, then they have to call 108 ambulances to come to the hospital. Such people will be admitted to the hospital. More than 10 people are dying daily from the corona in Himachal. Infection cases are also increasing steadily. More cases of corona are being reported in Shimla, Mandi and Kullu districts.

However, the government has decided to take door-to-door samples to identify Corona patients. Vans have been sent for 10 districts under Jeevan Dhara Yojana. It has a staff of 5 people including doctors, pharmacists and nurses. These workers will sample people with symptoms such as cold, cough and cold. When positive, they will either be brought to the hospital, or isolated at home. These will be supervised by Asha worker or Anganwadi worker.
