Another Drill Soon To Check Covid Preparedness: Health Secretary

| Updated: March 23, 2023 18:10

A mock drill will soon be conducted in all the states and Union Territories to evaluate their preparation to handle the dual dangers to public health, according to Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan, amid the country’s recent rise in influenza cases and the rise of Covid-19 cases.

Addressing a press conference in the national capital on Thursday, Bhushan said: “India on Thursday recorded 1,300 new Covid cases, the highest in the last 140 days. We will get a fresh round of mock drills done in all states and UTs in order to assess their individual Covid preparedness.”

Earlier, a mock drill was held on December 27 at hospitals across the country to evaluate their level of Covid readiness. The Union Health Secretary further stated that, as of right moment, India only accounted for 1% of all Covid cases in the world. 

 “Only about 1 per cent of the global Covid cases are being reported in India as of now. The overall active cases currently stand at 7,600 while 966 cases, on average, are being reported on a daily basis. In the second week of February, we recorded only about 108 daily cases on average. But the average daily count has since gone up to 966,” the Union Health secretary said.
