These sustained encouraging results have been made possible with the Centre-led proactive and calibrated strategy of TEST, TRACK, TREAT, TECHNOLOGY. Early identification through high and aggressive testing, prompt surveillance and tracking, supervised home isolation combined with high quality medical care through standard of care protocol issued by the Centre have aided the sustained high number of recoveries.
There has been continued focus of the Union and State/UT governments on improved and effective clinical treatment in hospitals, supervised home isolation, use of non-invasive oxygen support, use of steroids, anticoagulants, and improved services of the ambulances for ferrying patients for prompt and timely treatment. The Union Government has supported the State/UT governments with sufficient quantity of ventilators, PPE kits, drugs, etc. Tireless efforts of ASHA workers have ensured effective surveillance and tracking progress of the patients in supervised home isolation.
The ‘eSanjeevani’ digital platform has enabled telemedicine services which have been successful in containing the spread of COVID while simultaneously enabling provisions for non-COVID essential healthcare. The Centre has also focussed on building the clinical management capacities of the doctors manning the ICUs. The ‘National e-ICU on COVID-19 Management’exercise conducted by domain experts from AIIMS, New Delhi has substantially helped in this.
