New Delhi: The Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Thursday released Post-Covid Sequelae Modules, guidelines on Post-Covid management to guide on the long-term health issues of the Covid-19 infection to mark the third anniversary of the prime minister’s flagship scheme, Ayushmaan Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojna, (AB PM-JAY).

Aarogya Manthan3.0 was inaugurated on the occasion by virtual session.

A lot of doctors and nurses will benefit from these modules because they will be able to better deal with the long-term effects of Covid.

Mansukh Mandaviya took to Twitter and released comprehensive guidelines on Post-Covid management.

As a result, he believes that proactive and comprehensive treatment of Covid is necessary to ensure that the medication has only minimal side effects and no negative effects.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Bharati Pravin Pawar, Union Minister of State for Health, spoke at the event and emphasised the importance of addressing mental health issues in order to go the extra mile.

Pawar tweeted, “Today | along with Hon’ble HFM @mansukhmandviya released Post Covid Sequelae Modules which will be helpful in building the capacity of the doctors, nurses, paramedics and community health workers across India to recognize, diagnose and manage the several post- COVID sequels and provide holistic treatment to Covid-19 survivors and their family members.”

During the second wave of the pandemic, Mucormycosis, or Black Fungus, was a common post-Covid complication. A higher percentage of people who got it were immune-suppressed due to illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis (or other auto-immune diseases), diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, or cardiac problems due to age or medication.
