Regards to all.
Its my humble request that why we use words like at least in Maharashtra, or Tamilnadu or Delhi?
We here to make guidelines and common information to pass to society and other doctors. I felt that here also we are divided like politicians.

obese/ overweight kids, older children are sizeable in schools…
THE high risk cohort for covid n MISC morbidity..

preparing simple user friendly algorithms for 1)screening of MISC, 2)risk based clinical classification for therapy/referral of acute COVID, 3)counseling of children/parents/ family can be key public health interventions.

Not desirable to open schools until herd/vaccine immunity is reasonably of wide cover.
high risk hosts conglomeration is definitely not welcome for life risk to even a few!!

MISC clinical signs to pickup organ dysfunction n early intervention (triaging)are most relevant to CVS.
monitoring basal pulse rate,CRT n urine output will be most useful for HCW at periphery

using great toe for pulseoximetry in infants wih adult oximeter is reasonable

monitoring for CAP is the way in periphery.
happy hypoxia common in adults was reason for pulseoximetry

ASHA WORKERS ARE NOW TRAINED IN RURAL AREA FOR IDENTIFYING SUSPECTED COVID AND ANTIGEN (RAT) TESTING.

Rural conditions, especially poverty illiteracy, classical ignorance , misbelieves, alternative medicines, polypharmacy are major problems. These are major problems and health education is only solution.
