‘Bhilwara model’ likely to release coronovirus from India: we all know about it

new Delhi : Coronavirus is expanding its wings in the nation and with the lockdown deadline approaching, it is likely that the ‘Bhilwara model’ will be implemented in the nation to break the chain of spreading coronovirus in the nation.

What is Bhilwara model and how was it implemented?

After six people were found to be coronovirus positive in Bhilwara (Rajasthan) on 19 March, vigilant officials began looking for ways to deal with the situation. Collector Rajendra Bhatt did not wait for approval from the authorities and imposed curfew in the area.

The next day all boundaries around the district were sealed. Post that, the officers prepared everyone for screening; Around 6000 teams of doctors were hired for this task. Around 24 lakh people were screened by these teams in 9000 days. About 18,000 people were found to have cough and cold, taking them to the second phase of the test.

Bhilwara model applicable in Agra too!

On the lines of Bhilwara, Agra official Prabhu N Singh also enforced stringent rules in the area, in which those who roam without reason were given 14-day jail sentence. They will be booked under the Indian Penal Code 188.

Important measurements taken during model implementation:

# The boundaries were completely sealed except for essential services.

# Five hospitals were designed for emergency cases

#Bhilwara and surrounding areas investigated for coronovirus

# Disinfectants were sprinkled across the city to kill the virus

# If someone died due to coronavirus, the hospital, its home and surrounding areas were completely cleaned.

# Coronovirus suspects were released into a three-star hotel or resort.

# 6554 people were kept at home, who were placed under scrutiny through applications. People were asked to update their health status by 12 noon daily.

# If any of the quarantined member’s family leaves their home then an alert goes in the control room.

# 13,100 beds were read to deal with an emergency.

# Fixed time for purchasing essential items. 7-10 in the morning and 5-7 in the evening.

# The movement of all vehicles in the area was also banned.

Some media reports have claimed that with the success rate seen in the Bhilwara model, it is expected that this may apply across India during or after lockdown.
