In July, the Delhi government started providing pulse oximeters to asymptomatic and mild symptom corona patients undergoing home isolation.

Delhi has been able to minimise deaths of corona patients in home isolation thru this suraksha kavach called pulse oximeter. If patients detect their oxygen is falling, they reach out to us for help. We immediately send oxygen concentrators to their home or take them to a hospital, CM Kejriwal had said in a tweet on July 12.

A pulse oximeter is a device that monitors the amount of oxygen carried in the body. As per the health authorities guidelines, coronavirus patients need to be hospitalised if their oxygen level reaches 90 per cent or below.

This will help us in saving lives by detecting a drop in oxygen levels in time, CM Kejriwal had said on Sunday (August 16).

In case of Delhi, home isolation was a measure that helped us in fighting the battle against COVID-19. For instance, if there are 10,000 cases, only 1000 are severe and taken to hospitals. The remaining got cured at home. It saves 9,000 beds. This can be followed in villages, CM Kejriwal said.

In Delhi, the active COVID-19 cases continue to remain between 10,000 and 11,000 during the past few weeks. The deaths per day due to COVID-19 have also decreased.

Delhi on Sunday reported 652 new cases and eight deaths, taking the total number of cases to over 1.52 lakh and more than 4,100 deaths.

As of Sunday, there were 10,823 active COVID-19 cases in the national capital.

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene
