In some cases, test results get delayed, and hence, people suffering from fever, cold and cough should immediately start medication for coronavirus after consulting doctors, the Minister said.
Health Minister Eatala Rajender said the Union Health Ministry allotted 21,500 Remdesivir injections to Telangana for a period of April 21 to 30.
Minister pointed out that instead of allocating oxygen from nearby steel plants such as Vizag Steel Plant and Ballari Steel Plant, the Centre allocated Rourkela Steel Plant in Odisha to TS
"We have also urged the Centre to allow industrial oxygen to be used for medical purposes," he said
The second wave of the pandemic should not cause panic, he said while interacting with media persons. “People should understand that they can defeat Covid by staying fearless and positive,” the Minister said.
“Youngsters above 25 years form the largest group of Covid infections and it is our duty to vaccinate them. We are hoping the Centre takes a positive decision on the issue,” he said.
