Maharashtra will start the scheme My Family, My Responsibility on September 15, which includes a door-to-door COVID-19 screening campaign. The campaign aims to cover around 2.25 crore families. Moreover, volunteers will educate them about the symptoms of COVID-19 so they can get a test early if they notice them.
COVID-19 screening campaign in two phases
Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray, declared that the state’s health department will hold the campaign in two phrases: September 15 to October 10, and then October 12 to October 24. Besides volunteers, NGOs and elected representatives will also take part in the scheme so that the campaign begins at the gram panchayat level.
During the campaign, volunteers will educate people by holding door-to-door meeting. Then, they will check for symptoms like tiredness, throat pain, dry cough, diarrhoea and loss of smell and taste. They will also check the person’s body temperature and oxygen level. Furthermore, they will ask them to go for the appropriate treatment after checking for any co-morbidities like diabetes, obesity as well as heart and kidney issues.
Maharashtra leads with highest number of cases
Earlier, Maharashtra had another campaign called ‘Chase the virus’, also aimed at containing the spread of COVID-19. Presently, Maharashtra has the highest number of cases in India: 863,062. Today, India also crossed 4 million cases.
