Guidelines for management of adult Covid patients revised, check details

New Delhi: The Union Health Ministry has revised the guidelines for the management of adult Covid patients. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has given about it on its Twitter handle.

The revised guideline, drafted by experts from the Indian Council of Medical Research-Covid19 Task Force, AIIMS, and Directorate General of Health Services under the health ministry, said that it is necessary to check for tuberculosis and other conditions in Covid-19 patients if cough persists for more than two-three weeks.

The guideline also continued not to recommend medicines such as antibiotics doxycycline and azithromycin, and antiparasitic Ivermectin for mild Covid cases.

There is no evidence of benefit for injectable steroids in those not requiring oxygen supplementation, or on continuation after discharge in the moderate risk category, said the revised guideline.
