New Delhi, May 4 : The Delhi government on Monday decided to hire healthcare providers to care for coronavirus cases in the home isolation.
At the cabinet meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the process of home isolation of mild and asymptomatic Covid-19 patients was also approved. A training manual has been designed, which will be given to all patients and caregivers.
“A team of health workers will call each patient personally, and educate them on best practices for the home isolation. It will be followed by a daily call to track the important vitals of the patient and answer their queries,” the government said in a statement.
The patients will also get SMS alerts for the testing after the 14-day isolation.
“The Delhi government is working with one of the best home healthcare providers in India to make sure all Covid-19 patients get the best care possible during their home isolation,” it said.
More than 4,500 Covid-19 cases have been reported in Delhi.
