Datia: Transition in rural areas 26 percent and arrangements 10 percent
Datia (AboutGyan representative). Infections spread faster in rural areas than in the city, many people have died without tracing. Those considered to be normal deaths. There is no account of this anywhere. Compared to the arrangements in the urban area, 10 percent of the arrangements to fight corona are not even in rural areas, whereas the infection rate there is more than ‘6 percent. Whether it is the arrangement of beds or the arrangement of doctors or paramedical staff and various medical resources, all the arrangements are half incomplete. Although the administration has made changes in medical policy for rural areas, the change is not enough.
Health facilities are not sufficient in rural areas. Oxygen cylinders have been sent to rural dispensaries, but these cylinders have also been sent to only 4 blocks level hospitals. There is no medical facility in remote areas. Similarly, in rural block level hospitals where central oxygen pipeline and oxygen has been provided, there is still no adequate bed arrangement. For this reason, prevention of infection is not possible at all. Some villages have private x-ray machines at the block level. In other places, this facility is also not available. Then resources and equipment related to city scan or other investigations are far away.
Lack of medical and paramedical staff
In Basai, Sevdha, Bhander and Indergarh, with the shortage of doctors, the staff like paramedical staff i.e. nurses, compounders and dressers are also only 40%. A large medical staff is engaged in the urban area. Apart from this, only paracetamol or one or two other medicines are available in medicines. These medicines are also those which the health department has made available every month in the routine.

No oxygen supply in remote areas
The medical department has provided oxygen at the block level, but there are dozens of densely and large populated villages including Sonagir, Thret, Barauni, where oxygen facility is not available. Such patients have to be brought to the block level hospital or sent to the district headquarters, while in rural areas the rate of infection is more than 26 percent, in such a situation, the work is being carried out without oxygen. In this period of May 5 to 15 in the second wave of Corona, the God of the people is the owner of these rural areas.

Changes in medical strategy after increasing infection in the village
As the emphasis of transition to rural areas increased, the Administration and Medical Department has also changed its strategy. While door-to-door survey is being done, the rules have also been changed to protect the family of positive patients. Now the patient is being admitted directly to the Corona Care Unit. Earlier, it was isolated at home. Similarly, many changes have been made in the medical facilities and functioning of rural areas. In contrast, the medical department in the city area has now reduced the attention of the medical department. If resources are being collected in the rural areas, there is much less compared to the increasing infection. In many areas, including Baroni, Sonagir, the percentage of infection is very high, for that the Medical Department has given a different action plan. Which will be implemented in a day or two. The police department has also been asked to pay attention to the rural area.

As resources are becoming available to us, we are pushing this resource up to dispensaries located at the block level. There is a shortage of medical and paramedical staff everywhere. It is our endeavor that efforts are being made to provide immediate primary treatment and relief to the corona infected patients in rural areas. These dispensaries will have to arrange beds at their own level.
