New Delhi, 3 August In May survey conducted in 83 districts of the country, 0.73% people were found infected. The second survey was carried out in 11 districts of Delhi, in which antibodies were found in about 23% of the people, i.e. they were infected. In such a situation, the Dobora Sero survey is starting in Delhi. How much will be the benefit of this survey and what medicines are being given to the patients of Corona so far, due to which the mortality rate is coming down in India, Dr. Neeraj Gupta of Safdarjung Hospital, New Delhi is telling.
Dr. Gupta told that in the survey that will be done again, a sample of people of every type of community will be taken. It will be known whether the virus has spread in the society or not, and whether the virus can be controlled by people due to herd immunity. It is also seen that how many percent of people are left with infection and how many people need vaccine. Such surveys will be done in the coming days not only in Delhi but in the whole country.

Mortality is decreasing due to steroid
He said that in a long time the vaccine is coming in a long time, how can we prevent such infection from spreading and now how much the virus is affecting people, all the things come out in the survey. At the same time, on the medicine to protect against infection, Dr. Neeraj said that till now there is no medicine for corona virus, which can save people’s lives by giving it. Doctors only give medicines to fight the symptoms. All the medicines are being run right now, all are experimental. A recent steroid trial took place in the UK, which showed that it could be given to a serious corona patient. May reduce mortality of serious patients. But those who are not lacking in oxygen can also cause harm. In such a situation, which medicine can save a person, nothing can be said.
There are three types of corona test
Dr. Neeraj told about the corona test that is the first RT-PCR test, which takes 6-8 hours. It is considered a gold standard. There is a 70% chance of the investigation coming true. The second is the antigen test, in which the report comes in 15 minutes to half an hour. Antigens are 40% more likely to be caught by a patient. If the patient is negative in this and symptoms come, then only his RTPCR test is confirmed once. The third is the TruNet system, in which it takes between half an hour to an hour for a report to arrive.
Keep mobile, key, handkerchief away
In response to another question, Dr. Neeraj said that now everyone knows how the virus spreads, but many times mobiles, clothes, masks and handkerchiefs are the items on which the virus sits while coughing. Apart from mobile phones, there can be virus on glasses, keys etc. Therefore, if masks are placed, then even after touching these things, there will be no hand on the mouth. It is better to wash hands after touching any such thing. Keep changing masks from time to time and keep these items sanitized.
