A study by IIT-Kanpur praised Uttar Pradesh’s Covid-19 control model. The detailed research unveiled by Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath at a ceremony in Lucknow on Monday found that sustained, organized, and coordinated efforts helped limit the spread of Covid-19 in the state with the highest population density.

The study, led by Prof. Manindra Agarwal and his team, sheds light on the steps taken by the state government to lessen the impact of the economic crisis on the reverse migration of over 40 lakh migrant workers. This article also acknowledges the Yogi government’s role in providing jobs for migrant workers.

According to the UP Covid model, people’s well-being was prioritized along with economic support, healthcare expansion, and disease prevention. It is noted in the research that the University of Pennsylvania’s strict audit saved 30 metric tons of oxygen per day during the height of the crisis. UP was the first state to use IAF aircraft to airlift empty oxygen tankers to speed up turnaround times. According to the report, the state government set up free bus services for returning workers and ambulance services for the ill to make their journeys easier.

MNREGS also emphasized workers’ databases used by local self-governing bodies for employment cards. In support of the findings, Yogi said: “Despite numerous challenges such as a huge population, lack of resources and reverse migration of workers, UP’s pandemic response is serving as a model for various states and even countries.”

The CM said that the country would have been unable to fight the pandemic if the health and medical infrastructure had not been expanded under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi.

The CM emphasized that despite the pandemic, UP had made progress in terms of medical resource availability by saying that the state had kept working in that direction.

By 2020, when the first batch of Covid-19 tests is conducted at NIV Pune, the state will be self-sufficient in every way, Yogi said. “The state is moving towards self-reliance in every way.”

Declaring war on his party for allegedly engaging in negative politics during times of crisis, the CM said, “The state of Uttar Pradesh worked like a war machine to ensure an ample supply of medical oxygen, in stark contrast to other states that relied on the Centre for that purpose. So far, over 500 oxygen-generating plants have been installed at various medical institutions across the state.”

According to the health minister, only Uttar Pradesh has administered more than 38 lakh doses of vaccine in a single day.

“In total, the vaccine has protected 11.5 crore people. The race is on to vaccinate everyone who is old enough to receive it, “the CM was heard to say.

Dr. VK Paul, a member of NITI Aayog and the core team of the Union government for the response to Covid-19, praised the state’s efforts as well.

He asserted that the number of cases that could have been prevented during the second wave could have been as high as 70,000 per day in Uttar Pradesh. “By implementing proactive measures, the state government managed to keep things under control in the 24 crore-person states. Throughout the pandemic, the state has exhibited strong leadership, effective governance, and a commitment to public health by setting the standard.”
