NEW DELHI: Emphasising the need for adopting a unified strategy to fight the surge in Covid-19 cases in Delhi-NCR region, Union home secretary Ajay Bhalla on Thursday called for strengthening of the monitoring and containment mechanism in Delhi as well as the nine NCR districts of UP and Haryana.
At a meeting chaired by him to review the Covid situation as well as preparedness in Delhi-NCR, Bhalla asked the Delhi, UP and Haryana brass to make the health infrastructure in the region more robust to deal with any enhanced future requirement. He particularly stressed on ensuring adequate and functional oxygen supply equipment as well as buffer stock of essential drugs.
Thursday’s meeting was attended by Dr V K Paul, Member (Health) Niti Aayog, and other senior officers of the Central government and chief secretaries or additional chief secretaries of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi, along with district-level officials from NCT of Delhi and the neighbouring districts.
Bhalla conveyed that Omicron variant being highly transmissible, no stone must be left unturned to deal with any surge in cases and all measures taken by the state and the local administration to strictly enforce the norms of Covid-appropriate behaviour such as wearing of face masks and maintaining safe social distance in all public areas and public gatherings.
The home secretary stressed on ramping up of testing in all the districts of Delhi-NCR, where testing appears to be less. All measures and mechanisms to contain and curb the spread of the virus must be reinvigorated, he told the meeting.
