Covid 19 Guidelines, Government of INDIA

Covid 19, Government of India is taking all necessary steps to ensure that we are prepared well to face the challenge and threat posed by the growing pandemic of COVID-19 the Corona Virus. With active support of the people of India, we have been able to contain the spread of the Virus in our country.

According to WHO Situation update:

As of 28 April 2020 (8:00 AM), according to the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW), a total of 29435 COVID-19 cases, (including 111 foreign nationals) have been reported in 32 states/union territories. These include 6868 who have been cured/discharged, 1 who has migrated and 934 deaths. Hospital isolation of all confirmed cases, tracing and home quarantine of the contacts is on-going.

“India is now in a decisive phase of the response. As in the case of polio, in combating COVID-19 too, surveillance is playing a central role. Accordingly, at the request of the government, WHO has further stepped up the support in strengthening on-going surveillance and response at state, district and block levels; cluster containment activities; strengthening real-time data collection activities; and accelerated implementation of the national Integrated Health Information Platform. Our entire field presence, including the National Public Health Surveillance Project, has been fully re-purposed to support the government to overcome this challenge,” says Dr Henk Bekedam, WHO Representative to India.

Guidelines for Work Place:

  • When someone has COVID-19 coughs or exhales they release droplets of infected fluid.
  • Most of these droplets fall on nearby surfaces and objects – such as desks, tables or telephones.
  • People could catch COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces or objects and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
  • If they are standing within one meter of a person with COVID-19 they can catch it by breathing in droplets coughed out or exhaled by them. In other words, COVID-19 spreads in a similar way to flu.

Some ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Make sure your workplaces are clean and hygienic
  • Promote regular and thorough hand-washing by employees, employers and customers.
  • Put sanitizing hand rub dispensers in prominent places around the workplace. Make sure these dispensers are regularly refilled.
  • Promote good respiratory hygiene in the workplace
  • Ensure that face masks (surgical mask) and / or paper tissues are available at your workplaces, for those who develop a runny nose or cough at work, along with closed bins for hygienically disposing of them
  • Refrain from unnecessary travel both local and international.
