New Delhi: In view of the increasing cases of the corona, the Union Health Ministry is soon going to change several rules. The biggest change has been in the guidelines on home isolation. The Union Health Ministry has released it. The Health Ministry has issued revised guidelines for home isolation of light/uncharacterized corona patients. The patient will be discharged under home isolation and isolation will end after seven days of infection and three days of continuous fever, the ministry said.
The health ministry has said that there is no need for re-testing after the expiry of the home isolation period. According to statistics, corona cases have increased more than 6 times in the country in the last 9 days. The case of omicron variants is doubling in three days. People should be less inclined towards the hospital. This requires a new home isolation guideline. The Health Ministry is also concerned that the delta variant did not cause as much devastation as the delta variant in South Africa. There is a situation of uproar over what Omicron will take in India.
What are the new rules of home isolation:-
Elderly patients will be allowed home isolation on the advice of the doctor. Patients with mild symptoms will stay at home. This requires proper ventilation. The patient has been advised to wear a triple layer mask. In addition, the patient has been advised to take as much liquid as they can. On the other hand, patients who are infected or transplanted HIV and cancer patients will be allowed to go to home isolation only after consulting a doctor. Patients with the same symptoms and mild symptoms whose oxygen saturation is more than 93% will be allowed to go to home isolation. Mild and asymptotic patients who are in home isolation will have to keep the control room in contact at the district level continuously. The control room will be able to provide them with testing and hospital beds on time if required. The patient is forbidden to take asteroids. In addition, city scans and chest x-rays will not be done without a doctor's advice.
