Doctors have said that giving steroids to covid patients should be avoided and adviced to take Tuberculosis tests if cough persist , the government has said in its revised clinical guidelines for covid treatment .
To protect the people from viruses like Coronavirus and Omicron in delhi there have been made rules which people are supposed to follow in order to prevent the spread of virus.
People need to now strictly follow covid rules like wearing masks , using sanitizers, maintain social distancing, not go out of house unless it is absolutely necessary, take regular covid taste and take vaccination as fast as possible.
Testing remained a key and crucial component. It was seen from the data available on the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) portal that testing had declined in many States and Union Territories. In all the advisories on testing issued by the ICMR, including the latest on January 10, the basic objective remained the early detection of cases for quick isolation and care, she explained.
Taking care of health is very important in such time , we need to be very aware of our health and take all the precautions necessary to protect ourselves from the virus.
Meanwhile, the revised ‘Clinical Guidance for Management of Adult COVID-19 Patients’ issued by the Health Ministry has added active tuberculosis as a high- risk factor for severe disease or mortality and underlined the need for investigation in case cough persists for over 2-3 weeks.
The Ministry said there was no evidence of injectable steroids benefitting COVID-19 patients not requiring oxygen supplementation or in continuation after discharge .
Anti-inflammatory or immunomodulatory therapy, such as steroids, could have the risk of secondary infection like invasive mucormycosis, when used too early, at higher dose or for longer than required,’’ it said.
