‘Come On Captain! Lead the state from the front by showing exemplary courage & generosity of spirit’

‘Come On Captain! Lead the state from the front by showing exemplary courage & generosity of spirit’




It is good that PGIMR (Post Graduate Institute of Medical Research) has immediately distanced itself from the catastrophic statement made by the Chief Minister of Punjab Capt. Amarinder Singh, quoting a report of PGI’s Department of Community Medicine that 87 % of the Punjab population would be infected by the corona virus by mid-September. 
 
I wonder, why such a 'responsible person' no less than a Chief Minister make such an irresponsible statements, dealing with highly  sensitive situation. It is certainly a bizarre paradox. 

Ironically enough, during his press conference yesterday, the Chief Minister was repeatedly showing a file containing the report from the PGIMR and vehemently asserting that by mid-
September 87 % of the Punjab population would be infected by Coronavirus, which quite sensibly the PGIMR immediately refused to authenticate and quickly refuted the claims made by the Punjab CM.

PGIMR even denied having undertaken any such study. But the categorical statement made by the Chief Minister had sent chilling waves all over Punjab and people were shell shocked to hear such a horrendous prediction of their Chief Minister. 

There is no harm seeking information from various agencies engaged in such micro level studies to calibrate preparedness modules but it is certainly unwise to make such unverified studies public, that too on the National Television. 

The mathematical model of study made by Dr. Shankar Prinja, Additional Professor of Health Economics, Community Medicine and School of Public Health, PGIMR and his team should have been corroborated and re-corroborated and subjected to thorough vetting by National Agencies such as ICMR (Indian Council for Medical Research) or by Central Health Education Bureau and other research based public Health agencies. 
--------------

I agree that the Epidemiologists across the spectrum are using complex models to help policymakers get ahead of the Covd-19 pandemic. But the leap from equations to decisions is a long one and the mathematical models are certainly at variance than the other studies of clinical precisions.

Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh must refrain from making such unintelligent statement based on half-baked studies, particularly based only on Mathematical Models of the Study.
  
He should rather come out of his exorbitantly protected shell at ‘The Saragarhi Farms’ and visit boldly all the major Hospitals in the State to instill confidence among the Doctors, Nurses and Paramedical Staff including other front line supporting staff engaged in fighting the Coronavirus under most trying circumstances rather than playing optics on TV screens from his luxurious private sojourn in the Shivalik Foothills. 

This kind of brave endeavor of the Chief Minister would not only improve the conditions in the Health care centers, it would also embolden the courage of the Hospital Staff including Doctors. 

Being Ex-Army Captain he is expected to lead the State from the front by showing exemplary courage and generosity of spirit, during these difficult times, rather than making pessimistic and obnoxious statements from the safe haven at the cost of the State.

I am willing to accompany the Chief Minister on this particular endeavor for a change, if he so desires despite having unbridgeable repugnance for each other.

Punjab cabinet okays ordinance to bring private hospitals into Covid-19 battle

Punjab cabinet okays ordinance to bring private hospitals into Covid-19 battle



In a major decision, the Punjab Cabinet on Friday approved the Punjab Clinical Establishment (Registration and Regulation) Ordinance 2020, to bring the state’s private hospitals under the umbrella of the COVID-19 battle.

It was necessary for the private hospitals to join the battle against COVID-19, said Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, while chairing a video conference of the Council of Ministers.

The Chief Minister has been authorized by the Council of Ministers to approve the final draft of the Bill after its legal vetting.  

Captain Amarinder said it was important to activate all the resources, in the larger interest of the state, in the light of the current battle, which threatens to be a long-drawn one.

The Ordinance will provide for registration and regulation of clinical establishments in a professional manner to ensure compliance of clinical standards and protocols and transparency in the functioning of these establishments for fair and proper delivery of health services to the common man.  

There would be no undue interference in day-to-day functioning of these establishments, as per the proposed legislation, which will, to begin with, be applicable to all clinical establishments of 50 beds and above as in the case of Haryana. It is proposed that the Punjab Health Council may be headed by an expert/ professional of national repute instead of a bureaucrat, with at least two other professionals as members.

COVID-19 CRISIS
Punjab to remain under lockdown till May 1

Punjab to remain under lockdown till May 1



Punjab cabinet today approved the extension of the lockdown till 1st May, 2020 as the time did not appear to be right for lifting the restrictions.

However, earlier at a video conference with the media, hosted by the AICC from New Delhi, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh indicated since the lockdown could not be indefinite, the government was also looking for ways to extricate the state from the restrictions and enable it to function with the Coronavirus around. A high-powered committee with several doctors, medical and other experts, was examining the situation and will soon submit its report on the lockdown exit strategy.

Given the projections for India and the global trend of COVID-19, this is just the start of the war and the situation threatens to get worse over the next few months for India, Captain Amarinder warned, adding that lifting the lockdown would not be easy for any state in the present situation. 

Pointing out that most of the 27 positive cases reported on Thursday (the maximum daily increase for the state) were cases of secondary transmission, the Chief Minister described it as an indication of the state moving into the stage of community transmission. The situation could seriously worsen in the coming weeks, he added. "The predictions are horrendous, but we are doing our best,” he said, adding that while currently the numbers were low in Punjab compared with most other states, it cannot remain isolated as the pandemic spreads further.

The Chief Minister said the projections by scientists and medical experts suggested that the pandemic would peak in India by July-August, and around 58% of Indians would get infected, with 87% of people likely to get affected in Punjab. In the circumstances, no government could afford to ease the restrictions, he said, asserting that "we have to check the spread of the infections.” The state’s preparations would be aligned to these projections, he added.

The Chief Minister rejected as absolutely insufficient the Rs 15000 crore announced yesterday by the Union Government for the nation’s health infrastructure, saying, "How can this be enough for the nearly 1.4 billion people of India?” No state has the resources needed to fight the battle without the help of the Central Government and they have to come forward to help the states, he said, adding that he will take up the issue of more funds to enable every state to fight the war.

The Chief Minister reiterated the state government’s demand for a special economic package to deal with the crisis, pointing out that the Centre had released part of Punjab’s pending GST arrears over the past few days but those would barely meet the normal needs of salaries etc. He stressed the need for the Centre to come forward with financial assistance for combatting the COVID-19 crisis, saying it was the responsibility of the Government of India as states had to ensure food, free rations, shelter etc for the poor people. Punjab was taking care of the basic needs of the lakhs of migrant labourers stuck here but even industry could not continue to pay them indefinitely without assistance, he added.

In response to a question, Captain Amarinder said his government was gearing up for every eventuality, and had planned for making arrangements in four phases – for 2000 patients, 10000 patients, 30000 patients and 1 lakh patients needing isolation and treatment. While ventilators, masks etc were sufficient for the present, more had been ordered and would start coming in the next few days, he added.
 
On PPE kits, the Chief Minister said with two Ludhiana manufacturers getting approval for making such kits, the state would start getting 5000 of them a day from Monday and could provide the excess to other states, with directly or through the Government of India. As for medical staff, he said retired doctors had volunteered in large numbers and were on standby to help out.

With regard to testing, the Chief Minister admitted that the 2877 tests conducted so far were simply not enough, given Punjab’s population of 2.8 crore. Testing was constraint as only two hospitals in Punjab were given permission to test initially, along with PGI Chandigarh, but one more was now being added along with two private labs, he added. With 25000 Rapid Testing Kits also expected to arrive, mass testing in hotpots will also begin from Monday, he said. In the next few days, the health department would get more aggressive with testing and random testing will be done in areas of concentration, said Captain Amarinder.

On the contribution of Tablighi Jamaat to the spread of the pandemic in Punjab, the Chief Minister revealed that his government had received a list of 651 who had entered the state, and of these,  636 had so far been traced and 27 found positive (including 10 contacts of these TJ Nizamuddin attendees). 

Among the nearly 1.5 lakh NRIs and foreign returnees, the state had traced and quarantined the majority, said Captain Amarinder, adding that the quarantine period was over in 33166 cases of foreign travel.

Replying to questions on the harvesting of wheat, scheduled to begin on April 15, the Chief Minister said the state was gearing up to handle another bumper harvest and would be going in for district wise and village wise marketing/procurement. The number of Mandis from 1800 to 3800 this year in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, he said, adding that apart from police and district officials, Guardians of Governance personnel would also man the Mandis, with NCC volunteers also likely to pitch in.

COVID-19 CRISIS
Punjab govt still not clear on extending Curfew beyond April 14

Punjab govt still not clear on extending Curfew beyond April 14



Rejecting media reports to the contrary, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday made it clear that no decision had yet been taken on extending the curfew in the state beyond April 14.

Terming such reports as purely speculative and unfounded, the Chief Minister categorically stated that the state government was yet to take a decision in the matter. A decision in this regard would be taken after the cabinet meeting scheduled for April 10, he added.

The Chief Minister clarified that the speculation on curfew extension had been triggered by an advisory to employees from the General Administration department on a series of matters relating to the current situation. The said advisory had subsequently been withdrawn by the Chief Secretary on his directives, Captain Amarinder added.

The state government was continuously assessing and reviewing the evolving situation, which was changing day to day, and any decision would be taken in the context of the conditions prevailing around mid-April, keeping in mind the overall interest of the state and its people, said Captain Amarinder.

Though pandemic was currently in control in Punjab, nothing could be predicted at the moment, given the ever-changing dynamics of the situation, said the Chief Minister, adding that all the factors would be taken into account before coming to a final decision on extending or lifting the curfew, either fully or partially.

"We are keeping a close arch on the situation, not just in Punjab but across the country. We are also taking into account the way the pandemic is behaving in other countries so that we can imbue their learnings and act accordingly,” the Chief Minister said. 

The early clampdown in India had helped and while the situation was somewhat better than the more advanced nations, one could not get complacent, and the next few days would be critical to any decision on the way forward, he added. He reiterated that saving lives was the top priority of his government at the moment and whatever decision is taken will be centered around that, seeing how the pandemic shapes up in the state in the coming days.
  
Notably, the Punjab Government had imposed a statewide curfew on March 23, even a day before Prime Minister announced the 21-day national lockdown.

COVID-19 CRISIS
Punjab announces reduction in fixed electricity charges; Defers due dates for payment of bills

Punjab announces reduction in fixed electricity charges; Defers due dates for payment of bills



To further mitigate the hardships faced by the people amid the COVID-19 crisis and clampdown, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday announced reduction in fixed charges for electricity consumers, along with deferment of deadline for payment of bills, while instructing the Power department to provide uninterrupted 24x7 supply to all Health Care Institutions.

The PSPCL will have to bear additional burden of  Rs.350 crore due to the various reliefs announced for the consumers, an official spokesperson said, adding that the Chief Minister also lauded the employees of PSPCL and PSTCL for their untiring efforts in maintaining continuous supply of power in this time of crisis. 

No new disconnection shall be carried out against non-payment till restrictions are withdrawn by the Authority, the Chief Minister has further ordered.

The reliefs have been announced in view of the unprecedented situation in which consumers are unable to pay their dues to Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL), according to the spokesperson.

As per the Chief Minister’s directives, due date of electricity bills of all the Domestic & Commercial consumers, having current monthly/bimonthly bills up to Rs. 10000/- payable on or after 20th March, 2020, has been extended up to 20th April, 2020, without levy of late payment surcharge. Further, 1% rebate will be given to the consumers (exclusive of any previous arrears) who will pay electricity bills online through digital modes by original due date. 

The same applies to all electricity bills payable on or after 20th March, 2020 of all the Industrial consumers – Medium Supply (MS) and Large Supply (LS) Industrial Consumers. The fixed charges of the industrial consumers will also be exempted for the next two months, w.e.f 23.3.2020, and Energy Charges may be fixed commensurate with reduction in Fixed Charges (single rate), the Chief Minister has instructed. 

Since the Revised Energy Charges will be paid by consumers and will not be considered for subsidy, the MS and LS Industrial Consumers whose units remained closed during this period will not be required to pay any electricity dues.

Captain Amarinder has further directed A Venu Prasad, Principal Secretary to Government of Punjab, Department of Power, to provide uninterrupted 24x7 supply to all Health Care Institutions such as Medical Colleges, Hospitals, Dispensaries and other Medical Establishments and Quarantine Centres across the States for their smooth functioning. 

He has also directed that PSPCL shall ensure continuity of supply, and complaints related to safety and restoration of supply shall continue to be attended. However, for other non-essential services which require visiting consumer premises for meter reading, billing, release of new connections etc. may be discontinued during the lockdown period.
