DGHS’s Exit Strategy on Covid unscientific: Kumudesh

The Exit Strategy against Covid-19 introduced by the Director General of Health Services on January 27 has been formulated without any scientific basis, alleged the Academy of Health Professionals.

Issuing a statement, Union Chairman Ravi Kumudesh pointed out that the period of ten days previously recommended for the release of a person infected with Covid has been slashed to seven days, warning that this could be exposing those who are capable of transmitting the infection to the community, which could be a serious obstacle to controlling the pandemic.

“This guideline makes it mandatory for health staff to report to work within seven days and this could be leading to a serious transmission of the infection among health workers, risking the functioning of future services, as well as to a drastic reduction in the affordability level of the health service,” Kumudesh said.

He went on: “If the number of days needs to be determined more scientifically, we urge the Health Ministry to allow the testing and reporting of two infected samples that have completed ten days and seven days.”
