Coronavirus scare: 5 Delhi-NCR schools shut as precaution
NEW DELHI: The coronavirus scare grew in Delhi-NCR on Tuesday, with two private schools being shut in Noida. Three other branches of one of these schools — one in south Delhi and two in Gurgaon — also advanced their spring breaks as a precaution.
The Shriram Millennium School, Noida, where two children of the Delhi resident (who tested positive for Covid-19) study, said it would close till Friday on the advice of Gautam Budh Nagar chief medical officer Anurag Bhargava. Shiv Nadar School, Noida, announced holidays till March 10. Meanwhile, The Shri Ram School, Vasant Vihar, will shut from Thursday and its Aravali and Moulsari campuses in Gurgaon will close from March 9. The schools’ management said: “The spring break has been advanced. The holidays will be utilised for sanitising the schools as a precautionary measure.”
Covid19检测呈阳性的德里男子的两个孩子就读于位于诺伊达的Shriram Millennium学校。该校表示，在Gautam Budh Nagar的首席医疗官Anurag Bhargava的建议下，学校将停课至周五。诺伊达的Shiv Nadar学校宣布放假至3月10日。而Shri Ram学校将于周四开始停课，位于古尔岗的两个校区将于3月9日开始停课。学校管理层表示:“春假提前了。作为预防措施，学校将利用假期进行消毒。”
At least 70 people who came in contact with the Covid-19 patient, including six from Agra and 44 who attended a birthday party thrown by him, are under watch.
Delhi health minister Satyendar Jain on Tuesday said the go nment was taking all possible steps to keep the city safe. Flanked by deputy CM Manish Sisodia, Jain said, “Isolation wards are being readied in 25 hospitals, including 19 go nment-run and six private hospitals.” As many as 3.5-lakh N95 masks were being arranged, he added. “We have over 8,000 separation kits for staff treating coronavirus patients.”
Health ministry officials told TOI that the six people from Agra, who are suspected to be infected, have a high viral load and have been quarantined at Safdarjung Hospital, while others who came in contact with the Delhi resident have been put under isolation at their respective homes.
“Those admitted at Safdarjung hospital are under isolation and stable. We have sent their lung washing samples for testing the National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune. Confirmation is awaited,” the health ministry said.
The Delhi Covid-19 patient had visited the La Piazza restaurant at Hyatt Regency Delhi on February 28. As a precautionary measure, the hotel said they had asked the staff present at the restaurant at that time to go on self-quarantine for 14 days.

India needs to develop skills like China in how fast they were able to mobilize. They could build a hospital from scratch in a week close to the epicenter. The US is buying motels and converting them into quarantine zones. Education to the public about precautions is also important.

If Indians were just 10% more clean and hygienic, there would be significant decrease of diseases in India. But thats impossible. Its not in their culture. Religion, Caste and Regionalism have far greater priority than anything else..!!

There is only one cure for Corona virus in India and that needs help from all religious people. All Hindus, Muslims and Christians must get together and pray hard and fast. Schools must be closed so that all children and babies can participate in this prayer. Does not matter how you pray or what you say to God.....just pray, pray and pray. I am sure the virus will get scared.

The go nment and the authorities should also request the people to not to go to the temple, mosques, madrasas, dargahs, Gurudwaras, churches and such other crowded places to safeguard against the Corona scare.

The testing facilities in India are inadequate. We need to scale out the testing. There should be labs in every state that can scale out the testing and deliver the results within 24 hours. The longer the test results take, the virus can spread among the contacts in the meantime. India needs to divert some of the budget money towards stable testing infrastructure close to major cities.

I am sure a cure must have been sent via whatsapp in India which probably involves homeopathy or some amazing gaumutar concoction or some cowdung treatment.

Maintain hand hygiene folks and stay away from crowded places and wash your hands as frequently as you can. Stay fit and healthy India. Don't panic if you have any symptoms like cough and cold, see a physician immediately.

Corona virus is new but rate of death associated with this virus is about the same as flu virus. Don't panic but take precautions. Just like the other flu virus, this will disappear in few months.

The holidays will be utilised for sanitising the schools as a precautionary measure. No one should panic on this issue that is also important.

No need to panic...Corona Virus’ is infectious but mortality percentage is 0.2% as compared to SARS where it was less infectious but mortality rate was high (10%).
