Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (ANK)

Mangaluru, May 12: District in-charge minister Kota Srinivas Poojary said, "We have to clear doubts in the public over the source of coronavirus cases in the district. There is need of collecting more details
over the same.”

The minister was speaking at a meeting held on Monday, May 11, with the expert medical team at the deputy commissioner’s office.

District health officer (DHO) Ramachandra Bayari said, "Pertaining to cases reported at Bantwal, First Neuro and Boloor, over 1,000 samples were taken. Seventeen among them turned positive in which eight were from Bantwal, three from First Neuro Hospital and six from Boloor. After one of First Neuro Hospital’s staff tested positive, all the primary contacts with the patient in the hospital underwent medical test. Several out-patients and in-patients from Kerala have been treated in the hospital and have been discharged earlier.

“Medical team will get in touch with Kerala government to trace the cases linked to First Neuro Hospital and Kerala patients will undergo coronavirus tests. Even patients from Madikeri and Chikkamagaluru have been treated at the hospital. Madikeri patients’ reports came negative.

“In Dakshina Kannada, 4,398 samples were taken in which 31 were tested positive. To submit a report over the source of coronavirus cases, we can come to conclusion only after the test reports of Kerala patients who have been treated in the hospital is received. We need more time to submit the report,” he said.

    The first Victims son returned from Dubai .
    Covid shows no symptoms but can transmit to another human.
    Many people doesn’t know that covid was in his body and it left by its own ,due to immunity , But infected the fellow human .

    He returned on February 1st week. This case was on April 19.
    He was along with his friend too. His friend, family and friends also tested negative. So all these are high immunity people and today's 26 years old person who tested positive has low immunity?
    Kuch bhi logic! Wait till everyone gets tested.

    I fully agree with Monty Dotor that it's absolutely senseless to put so much of time, efforts, & money in identifying the original infection suspect; logically, it's almost impossible to pinpoint the origin of infection since the hospital was working at full capacity catering to both OPD & admitted patients!

    Logically too, since the time lapse has been so much since the first stroke patient was found to be CORONA+ve, the original infection suspect might have overcome his infection or succumbed of it or some other disease in an unknown place!

    Repeated pointers to a well reputed hospital will demotivate the professionals running it & increase the anxiety of other medical institutions; it's like (indirectly) somebody has hidden some info for long? Instead efforts should be made to find out the reasons of those who got cured & learn lessons from them!

    Now, it would be in the fitness of things to try to salvage our economy, by all possible means, which is the biggest Damocles sword hanging over the country's neck!!

    The above is a very personal & unbiased opinion only!

    The source also could be the cheap medical disposables imported from China.
    Many of the brands of syringes, gloves and masks are imported in bulk from China and repacked and rebranded in India!

    Why do you so think from the plane loads of supplies from China throughout India, only First Neuro (a small hospital) was the only one who got the infected stuff??

    BTW, China Also supplied emergency medical supplies in ✈loads to USA & all other advanced countries!

    It is now established in US and U.K. that COVID19 manifests itself as neurological problems in many patients. It is probable that limited knowledge at that point in time during outbreak of COVID 19 might have led these patients to First Neuro based on symptoms without knowing that the underlying cause is COVID19.

    There is no point in trying to track the origin.The patients, doctors , paramedical staff and hospitals should not be treated like criminals.The same energy should be used to track murderers, assaulters, loan defaulters, cybercriminals,drug dealers etc.
    Let us look forward and track the patients who have recovered.They can be useful to get immunoglobulin to treat fresh cases. Negative thinking does not help .Be Positive ,Be Happy,Be Healthy.
