Keeping in view the stage of Corona spread, it is important that utmost vigilance is observed for any latent infections. All zones are advised to immediately issue instructions to all doctors to keep a strict watch over patients reporting with Symptoms as produced by Corona infection,

Wherever qualified public health specialists are available they may be made in-charge to monitor situation on day to day basis. At other zones suitable medical officer may be nominated for this purpose.

Any unusual influx of cases in a particular geographical area/cluster of population especially compared to last year’s trend should be immediately brought to notice of local administration and Health Directorate/ Railway Board.

Further it is advised that while deputing staff for duty in isolation areas it should be ensured that only younger and fit persons are deputed. Old staff and with co morbid conditions should not be preferably posted to such areas.

    Now,the passenger trains r not running. Instead of keeping the passengers compartments can they not be used as hospital wards especially for quarantine. Please give a thought to this suggestion as in big cities space is difficult to find.
