DEHRADUN: Uttarakhand director common of well being Shailja Bhatt on Monday appealed to Char Dham pilgrims with comorbidities to postpone their journey. The advisory got here a day after TOI reported that 16 deaths have been recorded throughout the first six days of the yatra.
This got here whilst 4 extra pilgrims died on Monday attributable to heart-related issues on the high-altitude shrines. The general toll is now 20. The deaths have pushed the well being division to induce folks to chorus “if they’re of compromised well being”. “Those that are unable to defer their pilgrimage should deliver a correct well being certificates and comply with Covid protocols,” mentioned Bhatt, including, “I’ve written to the tourism division and have requested them to give you an advisory for all pilgrims.”
Well being minister Dhan Singh Rawat directed the DG (well being) to personally monitor the scenario. He mentioned that superior life help ambulances can be stationed in high-altitude areas to deal with emergencies.
