Kanpur: The health department will launch a special five-day campaign Wednesday to check the spread of the corona infection in the district. On the lines of the pulse polio campaign, several teams of the health department will visit door-to-door and create awareness among the people by informing them about Covid symptoms. The team will provide medical kits to people suffering from coryza, cold, cough, and fever at their doors.

Ashwini Gautam, district programme officer of National Health Mission said that in view of the fact that the deadly coronavirus was spreading its wings in rural areas and infecting a large number of people, a special campaign was being launched from Wednesday to create awareness among the villagers and provide them medicine and treatment at their doorstep.

The teams, consisting of two members, would tell the villagers about the new symptoms of Covid-19 disease, its prevention, medical examination and treatment facilities. Moreover, if the team finds anyone having symptoms, it will provide medicines too. Each team will have two members from the Asha/Anganwadi worker/teacher or supervisory committee.

Each team would be equipped with a medical kit. The campaign could be extended a few more days, Gautam said.
