With Delhi likely to report 1 lakh covid-19 cases by the end of the month, authorities have stepped up surveillance to control the spread of the pandemic and reduces mortality rate. Home minister Amit Shah, while announcing a series of decisions regarding the management of covid-19 in Delhi on Sunday, said the government will conduct house-to-house health surveys.
The survey will be conducted house-to-house to ascertain the spread of the virus, and also put in record high-risk and vulnerable segments in an area. These include senior citizens, people with co-morbidities who can be reached out to in this contact tracing exercise and help reduce deaths.
