What can Rajasthan do better in terms of its healthcare system to fight Corona?


Countries with better healthcare infrastructure have faced a tough time dealing with Covid-19. While India's healthcare system is insufficient to provide quality treatment to its citizens, the rise in positive coronavirus cases shall take a toll on the faulty system. Keeping the same in mind, the Prime Minister declared allocating Rs 15,000 crore to enhance the healthcare system. The Bhilwara district of Rajasthan emerged as the worst affected by the coronavirus pandemic but with the imposition of curfew, health screening, aggressive testing, home quarantine and door-to-door delivery made things normal. The healthcare system of the state is behind when compared to other states of the country. But the State government is tackling Covid-19 crisis by aggressively following the most talked Bhilwara Model in the treatment of coronavirus patients. Further, the Health Minister said that the State government has identified one lakh beds for quarantine in certain places; hospitals, houses, hotels, and hostels. Around 1 lakh beds have been made available for patients, 50 million people are being screened, 19,000 tests are being conducted and around 3000 ventilator beds are being made available at SMS Hospital, Jaipur to combat Covid-19. The state COVID-19 fund has been created by the Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot wherein the public can contribute funds in fighting the coronavirus pandemic. According to the news reports, nursing and paramedical councils have made a donation of Rs 11 lakh each whereas medical and pharmacy councils have made Rs 5 lakh each. Moreover, the Doctors' Union Associates have made the decision of contributing their one day salary and various public representatives have done the same. Rajasthan stands at the sixth position behind Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Uttar Pradesh in terms of mortality rate for coronavirus infected patients. After taking necessary steps, the state has managed to treat its corona infected patients though, Jaipur and Jodhpur still remain to be the worst affected cities hit by the coronavirus pandemic
