Pune, 12th April 2021: A central team sent by the union government to review the Covid-19 situation in Maharashtra, has suggested that there is no need to implement a complete lockdown in Pune, instead, the last week’s restrictions are enough to control the virus spread in the district.

As per a report published in Marathi Daily Lokmat, the central team which includes Dr Jugal Kishore and Dr Ghanshyam Pande noted in their report that the Covid-19 situation is not handled properly in the Pune district. There is a lack of coordination between Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) and Rural administration. Also, the team has given some direction for the Pune district to manage the Covid-19 situation.

The team suggested that there should be one centralised system or call centre for the people seeking help. The single bulletin should be published for the district. Considering the demand for bed, a patient who has an oxygen level above 95% immediately discharged and kept in home isolation. Along with this new bed should be prepared according to positive cases every day.

The use of CT scan should be limited and vaccination drive should be done in a controlled manner. Instead of opening many vaccination centres, the administration should vaccinate people according to the availability of vaccine doses. Also, a big screen should be made available outside every hospital, which can give information about the availability of beds and other information.

Most importantly, the team also suggested that there is no need for a further lockdown in Pune.
