Capital of Bihar In Patna, one person is found infected out of every five who get tested. This infection is caused by the increasing activity and negligence of the people. In particular, the pace of infection was very high in April. This important point has been revealed in the Corona Investigation Survey being conducted in Patna. In rural areas, the transition is still much lower than in the city. In Patna district, an average of 15,000 people are being examined every day. On an average, three thousand people are found to be infected.
The pace of infection accelerated significantly from the second week of April, which is still continuing. Corona’s nodal officer Pravin Kundan says that in addition to all the testing centers in Patna, an average of 15,000 people are being screened at PMCH, NMCH, Patna AIIMS and private labs. In this, every fifth person is found to be infected.
Over 16 lakh samples collected
In Patna district, a sample of 16 lakh 97 thousand 129 people has been collected for corona examination so far. In this, the disease was confirmed in one lakh 6 thousand 784 people. Of these, 88 thousand 877 people have been discharged after treatment from hospitals. Presently there are 17 thousand 590 active corona patients in Patna district. In Patna district, 316 people have died from Corona.
Every day one hundred and fifty patients come to be admitted.
Nearly one hundred and fifty patients are coming to the government and private hospitals of Patna every day, but beds are not available in this proportion. Only 50 to 55 beds in hospitals are getting empty after discharge of patients. In such a situation, the number of patients is continuously increasing. That is why people have to fight hard to get admitted in hospitals. In April, there were about 100 phones in the Corona Control Room. Now this number has increased to between 300 and 400. Magistrates posted in government and private hospitals are also unable to admit patients.
60% of people have common infections of corona
Officials say a study of infected patients in Patna district showed that 60% of people have a common virus infection, but people are getting upset after a cold, cough and fever and low oxygen levels. That is why there is a lot of chaos for getting admitted in hospitals. Common infections can also be treated by staying in home quarantine while 40% of cases are found to be moderate and severe.
