Jaipur sees a rise in ICU beds as COVID-19 cases surge past 23,000 mark

This order is applicable for both- government and private hospitals.

Back in September, the Health Minister of Rajasthan had ordered in-service private hospitals in Jaipur and 5 other districts- Jodhpur, Kota, Udaipur, Ajmer and Bikaner, to reserve 30% of their beds for patients affected with COVID-19. This move was issued so that COVID-19 patients can be treated effectively, without any external struggles. Now, the count of beds in Jaipur's Intensive Care Units (ICU) for covid treatment, has climbed up in the last 2 weeks.

23,179 confirmed cases in Jaipur till today

At present, Jaipur's corona death tally is at 325. So in an effort to arrest this rate and to limit it from promulgating further, orders had been issued by the authorities to increase the number of ICUs and ventilator facilities in the city. Oxygen beds have been increased as well along with other services, as medical professionals have found that high-flow oxygen therapy is useful for covid patients. This order is applicable for both- government and private hospitals.

The Health Minister had previously mentioned that all such private hospitals following the COVID-19 protocols as issued by the authorities, will have to treat corona patients in a separate ward within the hospital premises. This would be helpful in tackling the spread of the disease.

As yet, Rajasthan has registered1,44,030 positive cases of the novel coronavirus and the state has documented 1,545 expiries. Jaipur on the other hand, has reported 23,179 confirmed covid cases and the city has observed 325 fatalities; 14,439 patients have recovered and gone back home in good health. An overall of 21,154 cases are active in the state.

Parents of students in Jaipur rejoice as the Rajasthan govt orders to waive off fees by 30-40%

The concerned department has also submitted a report with SOP guidelines to the Chief Minister's Office, requesting suggestions on reopening of schools from November 2.

Bringing a sigh of relief amidst the parents in the state amidst this ongoing pandemic, the Rajasthan government has ordered the CBSE affiliated private schools to waive off their tuition fees by 30% for class 9 to 12. Along with it, the schools which are affiliated with the state board, have to slash their fees by 40%, for the same grades.

Along side this, the Progressive Association School of Rajasthan, which filed a plea against the High Court's decision ordering 30% deduction in school tuition fee, was not in support of this conclusion. "This decision is not right, it is discriminatory. If it is implemented, we will go against it to the Supreme Court. How will the schools be able to pay salaries to teachers and staff if fees are slashed by 30 and 40 per cent?"
