Dr Jitendra Singh calls for holding Awareness Campaigns about co-relation between Diabetes and COVID

@DrJitendraSingh
Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office Dr Jitendra Singh has called for holding Public Awareness Campaigns about the co-relation between Diabetes and COVID. Delivering the inaugural address at the World Congress-2021 of Diabetes India, Dr Singh said, those suffering from Diabetes have an immuno-compromised status, which tends to reduce their resistance and make them more vulnerable to Corona like infections.

The Minister said, over the last two decades, India has seen a surge in Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus, which has now acquired pan-Indian proportions. Type-2 Diabetes, which was till two decades ago prevalent mostly in South India, is today equally rampant in North India. He said, it has also moved from metros, cities and urban areas to rural hinterland. Dr Singh also flagged off the need for a series of COVID-Diabetes Academic Meets to create awareness.
