Alarmed by the increase in the number of COVID-19 positive cases in Bhatkal, the Uttara Kannada district administration is leaving no stone unturned to stop the virus from spreading further in the society.
The district administration has decided to collect proper data on the health condition of every citizen in the district by launching a massive door to door health survey. The Asha workers, members of RDPR and other departments would visit houses to study the health condition of every person in the district.
In the next three days, the representatives of district administration would visit every house and collect the information on People suffering from fever or any other health issues, number of people who have traveled abroad recently and also the number of people who came recently from other parts of the state or country.
“It will give us a clear picture of everybody who is in our district and help us to access the gravity of the situation. People suffering from fever will be shifted to the fever clinic for preliminary screening. The foreign returned will be screened daily. We will also start screening those who have entered the district from outside,” Deputy Commissioner Dr. K Harish Kumar informed https://thecanarapost.blogspot.com/ .
“Since this is a very important survey. I request everybody to cooperate with our teams during their visits. People should know that it is for their health and the health of society. We are coming to their doorstep to help them. The only thing they need to do is just to give the information our people ask,” the DC added.
