Preventing the spread of the virus in Nilgiris

prevention in Nilgiris

Our strategy is to contain the virus by preventing the spread. Here is how we are doing it:

  1. Although the rest of the state does not require it, the E-pass is still needed for visitors to enter Nilgiris so that the administration can monitor visitors and trace contacts.
  2. Contact tracing when people get infected so that others can test and be cautious.
  3. The Nilgiris is constantly increasing the testing facilities with easy access for all.
  4. People with no space at home to isolate themselves are provided with free quarantine facilities.
  5. Through mobile vans, kiosks in public squares, and this website the Nilgiris administration is spreading awareness to every town and hatti in the district so that people know how to protect themselves and others and follow the right protocols if they test positive.

What are pre-existing Co-morbidities and why are they important ?

Comorbidity means a disease or condition, often chronic, that is present in the person before contracting the Coronavirus. While most of these conditions are usually manageable with regular medicines, the development of another infection like COVID-19, puts a patient at greater risk of serious complications.

Some of the Co-Morbidities include:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Diseases
  • Cancer
  • Lung Disorders
  • Transplanted organs or any immune suppressant diseases
  • Chronic obstructive airway disease and prolonged tobacco use
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Obesity
  • HIV infection or on medicines that suppress immunity
