With the help of teachers a health survey will be conducted of every house recording details of all occupants to effectively check for vulnerable people and prioritize accordingly, he added.

Reacting on the question of private hospitals charging exorbitantly and denying admission with the reason of non-availability of beds, the DC stated that an online grievance redressal mechanism will be initiated for it and severe actions will be taken on hospitals charging more than the government ordered price slabs.
