As many as 1525 patients in Belagavi district were given HOME CARE and 781 have been discharged.
So around 744 COVID positive patients are still under Home Care.
The Home care system was implemented in Belagavi just 3 weeks ago and has turned out as a boon to the COVID positive patients.
As getting a bed was very difficult asymptomatic patients with no comorbidity can stay home in isolation and get themselves treated.
Advantages are a many for home care but also due diligence and treatment has to be followed by the patients.
3730 COVID positive patients out of which 2411 have been discharged.
Home care has come as a boon on the already stressed out health system. Each day a minimum of 100+ cases are been reported from the city.
Getting a bed in any hospital including civil is a nightmare as most hospitals have limited numbers of beds and all are occupied.
The district administration also has not taken any cognizance of this and has not made any helpline for the district where people can call and come to know in which hospital a bed is available.
The relatives of the patients have to call all the hospitals use influence and then get a bed. A simple helpline or a website where availability is mentioned will be a boon for the patients.
