Bhubaneswar, July 24 (LocalWire): Ganjam Collector Vijay Amrut Kulange said that many symptomatic patients of Coronavirus die because they are reluctant to come forward for treatment in initial stages.
“Door to door surveys are conducted intensively to identify the symptomatic patients as the people are not coming forward for tests which have resulted in last minute rush to hospital and even deaths in some cases. We are testing based on door to door screening,” said Kulange.
The Collector also said that more number of new cases are coming to limelight because the district administration is testing more number of people.
“Based on a door to door survey, we are now able to identify the cases in initial stages and test them.
This is the main reason for the huge increase in cases in the last few days.
Lock down implemented strictly and this period utilised to increase capacity of district health infrastructure,” he said.
