Undeterred by the current political crisis in the state, Rajasthan’s Ashok Gehlot government is continuously taking steps to contain the spread of Corona in the state. It is for this reason that while we may have seen fatalities across the country due to COVID , in Rajasthan , the mortality rate was less than 1 % in the month of July. It is said that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Perhaps following this maxim, the Gehlot government is now moving to ensure treatment through plasma therapy. Encouraging results were seen after this therapy was used to treat COVID affected patients and therefore the government has gone in full speed.
Permission has been sought from ICMR to start treatment with plasma therapy at other medical colleges. At present, patients are being treated with plasma therapy and given new life at Jaipur, Jodhpur Kota and Udaipur. The government is now encouraging plasma donation so that lives of serious patients can be saved.
Meanwhile , directions have also been issued to make available Tocilizumab and Remdesivir injections in all the medical colleges in the State for serious COVID-19 patients. These injections have been prepared by the senior experts of Sawai Man Singh Hospital.
The steps are being taken by Gehlot to prevent the human loss due to corona. CM Gehlot has said that there should be no death due to corona. He said that arrangements have been made to provide tocilizumab and remdesivir injections at Jaipur, Jodhpur Bikaner, Kota, Ajmer and Udaipur Medical Colleges.
