The state expands to new heights in the New Year, surpassing the rupees 100 million Covid test by RT-PCR, Health News and ETHealthWorld.

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh, which hit a new high on New Year’s Day, passed the Rs 100 million Covid-19 test by RT-PCR. UP is currently standing next to Tamil Nadu in the benchmark. However, the state is already number one in terms of overall Covid-19 testing, with a 2.44 chlore test.

“RT-PCR is the gold standard for the Covid-19 test, and the 1-chlore test is an amazing achievement. The achievement is due to the efforts of all members engaged in testing activities at our medical college.” Dr Rajneesh Dube, Chief Secretary of the Additional Medical Education Department. The test is undoubtedly the backbone of UP’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, government officials said: “The UP story on Covid-19 control in 2020 must mention the initiative taken by the state’s medical education department. It remains incomplete. ”

Dr. Duvet believed that the political leadership of Prime Minister Yogi Aditianas and Minister of Medical Education Thresh Kanna would continue to benefit while doctors and technicians were working hard during the crisis. It was.

“In March, UP had only one lab to perform Covid-19 testing, but today there are high-end labs in all department headquarters. This network will keep people even after the pandemic. It consists of BSL-2 and BSL-3 laboratories that continue to serve, “he added, adding that both the Federal Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and NITI Aayog praised the effort. Experts also praised the medical education department for thinking “out of the box” to find solutions to classic problems, especially the shortage of specialists in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.

Let’s take an example of a virtual intensive care unit system in which the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate School of Medical Sciences and King George Medical College played the role of big brothers. We used our expertise in two top institutions to address the serious shortage of specialists in sub-regional medical colleges (both government and private) and hospitals in metropolitan areas.

“This model, which developed countries follow regularly, provides a template for the future,” said a senior faculty member at SGPGIMS. The former Director-General said UP also took the lead in developing patient care and disease management protocols.
