BHUBANESWAR: Odisha’s strategy to fight against Covid-19 was based on five thematic areas, additional chief secretary (health) Pradipta Kumar Mohapatra said, recalling a year of planning to keep the virus in check.
The five thematic formulas were early preparation and stringent control measures, effective governance and evidence-based decision making, enhanced surveillance, testing and treatment measures, supporting and encouraging healthcare and frontline workers involved in Covid response and effective roll out of Covid-19 vaccination.
Currently, the number of new cases in Odisha has come down to 50-60 a day, which is one of the lowest in the country.
The state administration is vigilant owing to resurgence of Covid in some states, Mohapatra said. He said 7.6 lakh migrants were brought from their work places and as many as 16,824 temporary medical centres (TMC) were created for their quarantine, said an official source.
