From a COVID Hospital In Thalassery, What Kerala is Doing Differently. "It's War, We Shall Win"

  • katma 28 May 2020
  • Barkha Dutt Reports from a COVID Ward in the Government Hospital in Thalassery in Kerala. A fresh casualty has just taken place on the day we are there and the hospital is busy screening hundreds of primary and secondary contacts of the lady who has died. We spend time at its COVID ward to see what Kerala is doing differently.

    I truly feel, kerala , the way it runs, the way the people are of that state, kerala should be a separate country. They would be much more efficient. Most of the north and west are not learning anything out of all this. Today migrants entering bihar are not being checked and just sent home. South ,high time now.

    Today I went with my daughter to a Health center in Malappuram District. We have to thank Covid, because we got the certificate within minutes! The doctor and other staff were busy handling things and seeing to it that there stood no body in the compound unnecessarily!
    Many many thanks to all health workers!
    Never to forget another section who are also working hard due to Covid. That are the policemen!

    We are now on a war footing as numbers of positive cases are increasing since people are pouring in from other states and abroad. But Kerala could foresee all the consequences and the health dept has taken full measures to tackle the issues. The biggest part of Kerala's success until today is the awareness of people who understand it is their responsibility too to do social distancing and break the chain process.It is indeed the quality of education.

    Please maintain social distancing while reporting. There is no need to stand so close to other people and no need to shove the mic right in front of their faces. You can be perfectly heard even if you hold the mic a little bit away. And don't hold the mic right under the face shield. Hold it in front of it.

    Please notice how all the others are uncomfortable with how close you are standing to them. They are literally backing away each time you approach them. Maintain as much distance as possible. Especially since you are travelling around a lot and meeting a lot of people please be self aware and limit any chance of infection to others. You are at high risk of being a carrier. We do not want any more infections.

    No other states can compare with Kerala because the people trust the Govt, which is not the case with other state govt and in order to do that the Govt must show the way which is not the case with other States. People in Kerala trust the Govt. and the Doctors and Healthcare shows the empathy with the patients instead of pity or repulsion or i dont care attitutud. On India level, it is you find that the top person says one thing and does completely another thing so how can you find the co-operativeness of people that is there in Kerala

      Definitely, there seems gr8 cosmic chaos about this whole coronavirus precautions issue. Ppl who followed every instructions too had 1 infected person, but others not infected; yet other families where if 1 got infected, all got infected. While some such infected families lost a few members of the families, many others lost too many. While sometimes the old ppl were expected to die, survived; yet at other times, the young who ought to have survived, died.

      WHAT TO DO? It's really puzzling how many doctors still going strong, but a few doctors and nurses succumbed to the disease.

      Can you please explain why day before yesterday 248 new cases in Karnataka, all were returnees? They were all tested negative and then allowed to travel. But on reaching here, they became positive 😳🙄...
      How 🤔🤔🤔🤔?...

      Ek tho sala yeh bloody dushman aankhon ko dikhta nhi upar se it's creating so much confusion in the minds of the people whether following instructions is going to help or not because so many ppl for example Barkha ji roaming about all over India and nothing happening to her. There are many ppl roaming all over the city all days of lockdown distributing food and nothing happened to them.


      Iss mein upar wale ka haath hai. It's all act of God. So best thing is stay safe at home until cases become zero (go out only if necessary - enjoy your home
      दीवारों को देखो और कविता लिखो) and pray to God for a good outcome of this entire rigmarole that He subjected the world to. God sure made whole world do plenty of acrobatics that mankind might, otherwise, never have done.

      Maybe after many years, we may remember coronavirus days and wonder how come we did such foolish things like wearing masks, stand in circle (only one person in one circle - don't stand 2 2 persons in one circle thinking why waste so much space), wash hands, no handshake, only NAMASTE 😂😂😂😂
