Union Health Minister Reviews Situation Post Covid

Latest reports have been coming in from Union Health Minister Dr Harshvardhan who has said in a press release that COVID-19 outbreak has placed unprecedented demand on the health system. 

According to the Minister our health facilities and workforce are currently inundated with a plethora of activities related to controlling the pandemic as per Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan.

To achieve universal health coverage and reduce premature deaths due to non-communicable diseases (NCDs), healthcare system needs to transform. 

Sustainable development goal to leave no one underscores a public health approach and call for action by all stakeholders as per Union Health Minister.

On NCD data the Union Minister says that there's a silver lining for us; while 70% global deaths are attributable to NCD, in India it's nearly 63%. 

We've been able to reduce premature NCD related deaths from 503 to 490 per 100,000 population from 2015-2019 due to investments by GoI according to Union Health Minister.
