Udupi excels in Karnataka in discharge of recovered coronavirus patients


Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP)

Udupi, Jul 8: Udupi earned the dubious distinction of being the first district in the state to cross the 1,000 mark in the number of coronavirus infected persons. Now, over a thousand have been discharged from Dr TMA Pai Covid hospital and other hospitals without any treatment after being under the doctors’ supervision. In this list too, this district is at the top.

The first COVID-19 case was registered in the district on March 24. In later days, two more were added. After all the three were discharged, the number of positive cases in the district came down to zero and remained so for some days. However, once people started to pour into the district from other states and nations, the number of positive cases in the district sharply rose, and the district earned the distinction of being the first to cross 1,000 cases.

Three coronavirus-infected men from the district have passed away. All of them had come from other states and were suffering from heart, kidney and liver problems. One of them had died when being taken to the hospital while the two others had breathed their last at home. So far none of the patients have died in hospitals. Out of over a thousand infected persons, eight are in ICU. One of them is currently in critical condition while the others are improving. The person in intensive care suffers from kidney related ailment and the doctors have been treating him.

    This proves that covid 19 is not as deadly as how the news channels claim. It can be overcome by the majority of people if timely treatment of good quality is administered. However, prevention is always better than cure.
