AYUSH Kavach app to help in boosting the immunity of kids across Lucknow & other UP districts

AYUSH-based medication and home remedies will be provided to protect the children against the virus.

Amid widespread anticipations of a possible third wave and its dire effects on children, the Uttar Pradesh government is executing a list of measures to put up a tough guard. As per the latest developments, the state authorities are trying to connect kids with the 'AYUSH Kavach' in a bid to provide enhanced information for boosting their immunity. This initiative will be implemented with an objective to provide Ayurveda-based medication and home remedies for protecting the children against the virus.

Pediatric wards being instituted to tackle the third wave

It is expected that this program will expand the usage of Ayurveda, by bringing kids under its protection net. Additionally, the state administration is also working on other schemes to battle the third wave. While directives for setting up 100 pediatric beds in every district have been issued, the department of medical education has established 432 pediatric ICU (PICU) units in medical colleges and institutes throughout the state.

As the officials amp up the process, it is expected that PICU wards will soon be available at King George's Medical University (KGMU) and the Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences in Lucknow. While RMLIMS will have a 120-bed facility, the current plans include setting up a 54 bed PICU at Gorakhpur Medical College.

As per a government representative, "A total of 38 hospitals that were constructed to deal with Japanese Encephalitis are also included to combat the possible third wave, which the experts fear will affect children more."

Multiple interventions being worked out all across the state

A group of experts has prepared a list of trained staff, medical resources and medicines required for 10 bed PICUs. Keeping this in view, the state government has given out relevant directives for procuring the needed materials.

In order to maintain a strict and active check over the upcoming circumstances, a committee of experienced doctors has been formed at Lucknow's PGI, led by the institute's director. Besides committed effort in the state capital, focused interventions are also being worked out in Jhansi, Amethi, Mathura, Moradabad, Ayodhya, Gorakhpur, Meerut, Chitrakoot, Lucknow, Azamgarh and other districts.

It has been stated that ICU beds for kids will soon be ready in Pratapgarh, Prayagraj, Jalaun and Kaushambhi. Further, the principal secretary in the medical education department, Alok Kumar assured that works have been initiated at a hastened speed after the expert advisory committee issued the detailed instructions.
