While pressure on COVID Care Hospitals has been eased, Plasma requirement has sharply fallen.
Interestingly while resurgence of cases is evident in number of States, cases in Odisha is on decline.
So pressure on COVID Care Facilities is easing and more patients are opting for Home Isolation.
Latest Report on Plasma Therapy reveals that while nearly 4000 units of Plasma were collected, nearly 1800 persons have donated Plasma.
However there is low demand for Plasma Therapy in the State, officials say.
Plasma Therapy is administered to the critically ill patients and this one has been helpful in reducing mortality.
According to officials 3943 Plasma Units were collected and 3266 Plasma Units were distributed among the patients.
2735 Patients received First Plasma Treatment and 471 Persons have received Second Plasma Treatment.
While 551 patients are stable, 315 Patients are improving and 1434 Patients have recovered from the dreaded disease.
Though there is less requirement of Plasma the authorities of Plasma Bank have been instructed to continue to prepare Plasma Units and maintain the buffer stock.
While Plasma Therapy was launched 15 July in Odisha by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, as there was huge demand for the new found care for COVID-19.
There are Six Plasma Banks in the State, SCB Medical College, Cuttack, MKCG Medical College, Berhampur, VIMSAR Medical College, Burla, SLN Medical College, Koraput, Capital Hospital, Bhubaneswar and IGH Medical, Rourkela.
Patients in Home Isolation has gone up to 76.65 Percent with 6759 Patients are opting for Home Care.
While COVID Care Centres have capacity to accommodate over 10000 Patients, only 193 Patients are there in CCCs.
More than 7390 beds are available in COVID Care Hospitals, both with Government and Private Sector and as on date only 1171 Beds are occupied by Patients.
Similarly there are more than 1500 ICU and HDU Beds are available but only 664 are occupied by the patients.
Ventilators availability is 585 and occupancy is only 134 only, said an official.
Current growth rate of cases is 0.21 Percent and keeping this in view, it is expected that by 30 November, cumulative cases may go up to 3, 18,050 and recovered cases will go up 3,08,508, officials say.
Positivity Rate in Odisha is 5.8, where as it is 17.8 in case of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh is 9.0 and 8.3 in case of West Bengal.
So Odisha Positivity Rate is much better than the neighboring States, so also Case Fatality Rate (CFR).
CFR in Odisha is 0.5, while All India Average is 1.5, while Punjab leads with 3.2 CFR.
Only Five districts of the State like Sundargarh, Mayurbhanj, Khorda, Cuttack and Angul contribute nearly 40 Percent of the total cases.
