 8 tips given by 21 experts to avoid the third wave of Corona

 In India, the effects of the second wave of Corona virus are lessened and a third wave is also being feared.

 Vigilance is still being advised.  Something similar advice is given by 21 experts in a graph in The Lancet Medical Journal.

 The experts include Kiran Majumdar-Shaw, founder of Biocon, a biopharmaceutical company in India, and renowned surgeon Dr Devi Shetty.

 Experts have recommended that governments work on eight issues for preparations before the Corona case escalates again.

 1. Essential health services should be decentralized.  The same approach is not suitable for all as corona cases and health services vary at the district level.

 2. The cost of all essential health services such as ambulance, oxygen, essential medicines and treatment in hospitals should be determined at the border and a transparent national value policy should be formulated.  Hospital treatment should not be financially burdensome and the cost of all should be borne by existing health insurance plans.

 3. Clear, evidence-based information regarding the operation of Covid-19 should be further elaborated and implemented.  This information should include international guidelines in local language for home-based supervision and treatment, first aid and treatment in district hospitals, including local conditions and clinical practice.

 4. All human resources present in all sectors of the health system, including the private sector, should be prepared for the fight against Covid-19.  They must have adequate resources for this fight, such as equipment for their own protection, guidance for the use of clinical interventions, insurance and collaboration for mental health.

 5. To make better use of existing vaccine doses, state governments should give preference to different groups for corona virus vaccine.  As the supply of vaccines increases, so does its scope.  Vaccination is in the public interest.  It should not be left to the market system.

 6. The fight against Kovid-19 should focus on working with community unity and people's participation.  Civil society working at the ground level has played a very important role in people's participation in health care and other development activities, such as strengthening the fight against COVID-19 in big cities like Mumbai.

 7. There should be transparency in government data collection and modeling to actively prepare districts in view of the fear of increase in corona cases in the coming weeks.  Health workers need data on different age and gender statistics in Covid-19 cases, hospital admissions and mortality rates, community-level coverage of vaccinations, community-based tracking of treatment protocol effectiveness, and long-term outcomes.

 8. Stopping work and going to work has increased the hardships of the people and also increased the risk to health, which can be reduced by transferring cash to the workers.  Some state governments have done so.  Employers in the formal sector must retain all workers in employment regardless of the status of the existing contract.  The government should have a commitment to compensate these companies when the economy gets on track.
