SudhakarBengaluru : All Medical and para medical staff will be trained in all districts regarding Covid management, says Health & Medical Education Minister Dr.K.Sudhakar. He was speaking at the inauguration of training program organized by State Health Dept for doctors in Bengaluru Urban District here on Friday.

Vaccine is being given to the persons aged above 18 years. Experts are of the opinion that the infection can also be spread to those under 18 years. The same treatment given to adults cannot be provided to children. They have to consult pediatrician only. Therefore, children specialist doctors are being trained to handle this. Doctors in all districts will be imparted training on this, said the Minister.

Specialist doctors are giving training and it is good if it is recorded. Therefore the training being given here should be video recorded. All doctors should be informed about this, he said.

Necessary measures have been taken as per the recommendations of the committee headed by Dr.Devi Shetty regarding the third wave. Covid virus is transforming itself and even developed nations are struggling to deal with it. India has successfully tackled the first wave when compared to other nations. Infrastructure had been significantly ramped up before the second wave. Four thousand doctors have been appointed, said Dr.Sudhakar.

We need to be very careful as we share borders with Kerala and Maharashtra. We need to observe all safety measures as infection is still there. Bengaluru is leading in vaccination and I congratulate all healthcare warriors for this, said the Minister.

Treatment for Children

We are opening a special division for children care in every district hospital. We have provided necessary man power for the purpose. Third wave is pesistant in many countries, we cannot invite it here. We can control the spread if we put break into social and religious gatherings. We need to be careful till at least 70% of the population are vaccinated said Dr.Sudhakar.

Prime Minister today held a VC with Chief Ministers of various states and our CM has requested to supply 5 lakh doses of vaccines every day. We have targeted to vaccinate 1.5 crore people in one month. Already 2.4 crore people have been vaccinated so far. We are expecting more vaccines this month, said the Minister.
