Since a month, the city has been witnessing a rise in the number of COVID-19 patients. Daily one or more patients are being tested positive and the hot spots of Nagpur have proven to be real threat and play fatal in some cases. The Nagpur Municipal Corporation even restricted the movement of people in these hotspots.
However, even though the city well known for its citric flavour is going through a critical condition a hope can be seen amongst the doctors and those who are always present on the frontline. TLN has been continually in touch with most of the people who have been active since the virus hit Nagpur.
While asking about the condition of Nagpur city and its cured cases, Anil Gawande, Medical Superintendent, Government Medical College (GMC) informed, “We have been treating a large number of patients and noticing their health taking leap of cure. If counted today, there are 53 patients who have been sent home after tested negative of novel coronavirus”.
It is true that the hospitals and facilities in Nagpur are proving to be efficient on curing patients with COVID-19. On Sunday four new patients were discharged which if measured in percentage, Nagpur has 33 percent of cured patients who were earlier diagnosed with coronavirus.
Amongst the recently discharged patients, a 15-year-old girl who was admitted on April 12 to GMC has recovered in 14 days. She found negative after a series of tests since the day she was admitted. Similarly, a 23-year-old man, a 30-year-old woman, and a 42-year-old man were also found to be negative and were discharged.
The total number of cured patients in Vidarbha is 94. For those who are in isolation in Nagpur, currently do not have symptoms of coronavirus and are expected to be discharged soon.
