Union Home Minister Amit Shah held a meeting  with Chief Ministers of Delhi, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh for a unified strategy for COVID19 in the National Capital Region(NCR) Thursday.

He emphasised on the need to focus on more testing of those suspected of Covid19 so that the infection rate in the NCR region can be reduced.

Shah  said that adoption of more testing  via Rapid Antigen Test Kits will help in reducing infection transmission rate below 10 percent as suggested by World Health Organization.

He said nearly 90 percent of screening is possible through these kits. These kits can be provided by Government of India to Uttar Pradesh and Haryana governments in numbers desired by them.

The Union Home Minister emphasising on the importance of the humanitarian perspective to save lives of the poor and the needy, said the focus should be on early hospitalisation of patients, so that the mortality rate can also be reduced.

Shah also emphasised on the wide use of Arogya Setu and Itihas Apps to help COVID19 mapping in the NCR.

The Union Home Minister added that the AIIMS Delhi Telemedicine consultation model being used in Delhi for COVID patients should be replicated in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana also.

He suggested that UP and Haryana can join AIIMS-Telemedicine COVID consultation through which patients can get advice by expert doctors. The training for doctors in small hospitals in UP and Haryana can be provided by AIIMS with the help of Tele-videography.

V.K Paul, Member NITI Ayog also gave a presentation on the strategy of tackling COVID19 in NCR. He provided details of best practices adopted in Delhi-NCR and the way ahead.

The Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare Harshvardhan, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Haryana Manohar Lal Khattar, Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal and senior officials of the Government of India, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi governments were present at the meeting.
