Karimnagar/Hyderabad, Dec 23 (Hydnow): In the wake of the report of fresh COVID cases, district medical and health department officials are making arrangements to tackle the outbreak of cases.  The cases of JN1, a sub-variant of omicron, have been reported in different states of the country. 

Though no case was reported in the erstwhile Karimnagar district, medical and health department officials are getting prepared to tackle the virus successfully since the cases are likely to be reported in the coming days. 

Besides alerting the staff of PHCs and CHCs, isolation wards are also being prepared in hospitals to provide treatment to infected people.  Health department officials were also instructed to conduct Corona tests on people with symptoms of the JN1.  Isolation wards, which were used to provide treatment to Covid patients earlier, are being utilized to provide treatment to general patients since coronavirus cases have not been reported during the last two years.

In the wake of fresh cases, isolation wards are being prepared, and medicines, injections, and other equipment are also being kept ready. 

During the earlier outbreaks, several coronavirus patients died due to a lack of adequate oxygen supply during the first and second waves of COVID-19.  Not to repeat such a situation, oxygen facilities have been provided to all beds. 

Rajanna-Priscilla district officials have already arranged ten isolation beds in the Sircilla and Vemulawada hospitals.  100 isolation beds, which earlier were used for Covid patients in Karimnagar district headquarters hospital, are being prepared.  Besides a 21,000-liter-capacity liquid oxygen tank, two oxygen concentrators are available in the hospital, and 32 bedside concentrators and 40 ventilators are also available.
