The graph of covid cases in Noida and Greater Noida is going up with every passing day. Panchsheel Green 1, a highrise housing society in Greater Noida west has recorded 40 active in this latest spate of Covid 19 cases. To bring the situation under control, AOA and residents have revised the Covid care centre within the society premises that was created last year during the second wave.
As per AOA, fortunately, among the 40 cases, none are critical and all are under home quarantine. The separate area of the clubhouse has been turned into a Covid wardroom. The AOA has prepared 5 isolation beds which can be expanded up to 10 beds if need be in future. They have two oxygen cylinders and three oxygen concentrators with 100-liter and seven-litre capacity respectively.
Society has 18 towers and 2,200 flats where about two thousand families live. This is the first society in Greater Noida of the Panchsheel group which was handed over by the builder to the AOA.

Vikas Kumar, AOA president of the society says, "Last time when Covid cases were at its peak, this ward helped us in critical situations. This time we are completely prepared. The society recorded 40 active cases but thankfully they are not severe. The four members from the AOA team are available for the residents at all hours. We are also ensuring regular sanitisation of floors and towers."
Nitin Malik (34) says who was tested positive last year "This ward was very helpful for me and my family when I was ill. My wife and I were positive according to the RT-PCR reports but we were both asymptomatic. One night my four-year-old son's condition became very critical. His oxygen level decreased to 62. No hospital was ready to admit him because we did not have his RT-PCR reports. During that time the AOA team helped us and for about more than 1 hour we gave oxygen to him. After this, his condition became normal."
Another resident of the society, Ravi Avana (41) says, " Last time the Covid ward team was very helpful to us in case of emergency. There were many patients with critical conditions and the ward came to recuse. For patients who were not able to travel to a hospital, the isolation beds and oxygen cylinders provided a huge help. Covid cases are again being recorded, but the AOA is prepared and there is regular sanitation in society's common area, lifts, lobbies."
