Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan has urged that efforts should be made by all stakeholders to minimize the mortality due to COVID-I9 to a minimum possible level. In a letter to all secretaries of Health of states and UTs, Mr. Bhushan cautioned public health action in terms of containment, surveillance, contact tracing, testing, adherence to COVID appropriate behavior and COVID-l9 vaccination are of prime importance. Health Ministry in collaboration with All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, under the Center of Excellence (CoE) initiative had previously held a series of webinars with State-level Centers of Excellence on various aspects of clinical management of COVID-l9 cases. This series of webinars has been well received by doctors, particularly intensivists and critical care experts. The States and UT Center of Excellence were urged to hold similar series of webinars with their district-level counterparts, which was undertaken by many States.

Mr. Bhushan in his letter said, in continuation of those efforts, there will be another series of Center of Excellence webinars for all State Level Centers of Excellence and district level public and private COVID health facilities in collaboration with AIIMS, Delhi.

AIR correspondent reports, nine webinars, starting January 5th to 19th of this month, have been planned on different subjects to tackle the Covid-19.
