While DyCM announced 150 more adult ambulances in state budget , doctors await 28 neonatal ambulances promised in 2018-19 budget While presenting Gujarat State Budget for 2021-22, DyCM Nitin Patel announced allocation of Rs 30 crore for 150 more ambulances to the existing fleet of 622 under the GVK-EMRI service. But will this be another hollow promise? The new announcement comes even as 28 neonatal ambulances meant to transport critical children have not been pressed into service even three years after these were promised. In his 2018-19 budget, three months after BJP returned to power in Gujarat, Patel had allocated Rs 3 crore to procure and push into service neonatal ambulances for inter-hospital transfer so that newborns with congenital conditions or other diseases who could not be treated in peripheral areas could be safely transported to tertiary level government healthcare facilities in major cities. Speaking on the need for these specialised ambulances, … [Read more...] about Where are neonatal ambulances, Guj govt?

Ivermectin , a controversial anti-parasitic drug that has been touted as a potential Covid-19 treatment, does not speed recovery in people with mild cases of the disease, according to a randomized controlled trial published Thursday in the journal JAMA. Ivermectin is typically used to treat parasitic worms in both people and animals, but scientific evidence for its efficacy against the coronavirus is thin. Some studies have indicated that the drug can prevent several different viruses from replicating in cells. And last year, researchers in Australia found that high doses of ivermectin suppressed SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, in cell cultures. Such findings had spurred use of the drug against Covid-19, especially in Latin America . “Ivermectin is currently being used widely,” said Dr. Eduardo López-Medina, a doctor and researcher at the Center for Pediatric Infectious Diseases in Cali, Colombia, who led the new trial. “In many countries in the Americas … [Read more...] about Popular drug does not alleviate mild Covid symptoms: Study
