Delhi government decides to hire home healthcare providers to care for home isolation for COVID+ patients

  • Decision taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by CM Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal chaired the first Cabinet meeting after the opening of government offices, as part of new lockdown guidelines effective from May 3, 2020. Among the major decisions taken today was regarding approval of the process of home isolation of mild and asymptomatic COVID-19 positive patients.
An entire training manual has been designed which will be given to all patients and their caregivers. A team of health workers will call each patient personally, and educate them on best practices for home isolation. This will be followed by a daily call that will track all the important vitals of the patient and answer all their queries. The patients would also get automatic SMS alerts for patients testing to be done after 14 days of isolation. Delhi Govt is working with one of the best Home Health Care providers in India to make sure all Covid positive patients get the best health care possible during their home isolation period.
