Bhubaneswar, Jan 17: The growth rate and doubling time of Covid-19 cases have come down slightly in Odisha, said Director of Public Health Niranjan Mishra on Monday.

“Odisha sees fall in growth rate & doubling time. Out of the 75000+ active cases, only 1200 are at hospitals. The hospitalisation rate is considerably low. This indicates that the situation is under control even though the positive cases are rising. However, we have to monitor the situation as it is predicted that cases may increase,” said Mishra.

Mishra also said that if a person shows symptoms like cold, cough and fever, then they should isolate themselves and should undergo Covid-19 test.

“People suffering from cold and cough should isolate themselves at home and if required undergo a test. Besides, they should take medicines on the advice of physicians and avoid consuming unnecessary steroids and drugs”, said Mishra
