DoNER minister Jitendra Singh on Sunday said that awareness and not anxiety is the key to fight the covid pandemic.

Singh also launched the Continuous Oxygenation & Vital Information Detection Biomed ECIL ESIC Pod (COVID BEEP)- India’s first indigenous, cost-effective, wireless physiological parameters monitoring system for COVID-19 patients.

It has been developed by ESIC Medical College Hyderabad in collaboration with IIT Hyderabad and Department Of Atomic Energy.

Singh further stressed on the importance of prevention and awareness in dealing with this pandemic effectively.

Lauding the efforts of ESIC Medical College Hyderabad, Singh said that the COVID BEEP is a perfect example of how synergy amongst the reputed institutes of India can offer solutions to most of the challenges faced by the country with minimum cost and thereby make the country Atmanirbhar in true sense.

Singh also said that COVID BEEP would emerge as an effective antidote to COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID BEEP will greatly reduce the transmission risk as well as help save resources like PPEs.
