Provide rapid treatment for patients with black fungus: CM

Prime Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday instructed senior health officials and district collectors to take all precautions and ensure prompt treatment of all patients affected by mucormycosis, commonly known as black fungus.

“We must be extremely careful with the increase in the incidence of black fungus cases. There have been reports of some infections due to white and yellow fungus and we need to be wary of new infections. Make sure all suspected cases are dealt with, “Jagan Mohan Reddy said at a COVID-19 review held at the warehouse office on Monday.

The Chief Minister, who was conducting a full readiness review of Cyclone Yaas, urged collectors to ensure an uninterrupted supply of oxygen. With neighboring Odisha being a major supplier of liquid oxygen, Ministry of Health officials and collectors have been ordered to work closely together to ensure an uninterrupted supply of oxygen.

Mr. Jagan Mohan Reddy also directed General Secretary Adityanath Das to rush to Visakhapatnam and monitor the city’s readiness for cyclones. Mr. Das traveled to Visakhapatnam shortly after the meeting.

“We get about 15,000 oxygen concentrators shipped to districts, and I want collectors to make sure the concentrators are working. I also want hospitals with more than 50 beds to set up their own oxygen production units and we will offer a 30% incentive to those who build oxygen production facilities, ”said Jagan Mohan Reddy.

The Chief Minister also reviewed a previously announced decision to deposit £ 10 into the accounts of children who have lost their parents. Officials said 34 such children have been identified and the money will be deposited soon.

The deputy prime minister and minister of health and family planning, Alla Kali Krishna Srinivas, the general secretary Adityanath Das, DGP Gautam Sawang, the health minister AK Singhal, the chairman of the state COVID control room, KS Jawahar Reddy, and the health commissioner K. Bhaskar were present.
