Intensified local level ‘contact tracing’ has been shown to be useful in controlling corona infections. After the intensification of contact tracing, the infected people in the community have been detected and the alertness has also increased, said the health workers.
Earlier, the infection was spreading when those who came in direct contact with the infected were able to walk freely.
Sandeep KC, coordinator of the basic health and sanitation branch of Dhulikhel Municipality, argued that contact tracing has helped control corona in many ways. “It also helped to detect the infection in the community, it would also alert other people,” KC said. “Another thing is that I have the self-confidence to recover like other people in the community after being infected, to start treatment immediately after the corona infection is confirmed.” It has also become possible. ‘
He informed that the infection has been confirmed in 125 people in the same ward on the basis of contact tracing. Dhulikhel Municipality is collecting swabs by conducting regular contact tracing in the wards at risk of infection. Deepak Ghimire, Covid Focal Person of Mandandeupur Municipality, said that corona infection was confirmed through contact tracing in many who did not show symptoms. “On Friday, 34 out of 35 people tested positive for swabs and 26 of them had no symptoms,” Ghimire said.
Health Branch Coordinator of Banepa Municipality Shambhu Kumar Mahato informed that swabs have been collected in three places giving priority to contact tracing as the number of infected people is increasing daily.
“We are collecting swabs in three places in the city on a daily basis. Those who have collected swabs during contact tracing live separately, so there is less possibility of relocation,” said Mahato. There is a problem even when it takes time for the test results to come. ‘
Other local levels of the district have also emphasized on work including contact tracing. Local levels including Panauti, Namobuddha, Panchkhal Municipality and Roshi Municipality are collecting swabs daily. Health Coordinator of Panauti Municipality Purushotam Timalsina informed that about 950 swabs have been collected in the wards so far.
