Health Advisory Issued for Char Dham Pilgrims

Uttarakhand Tourism Development Board has recently issued an advisory for Char Dham Pilgrimage.

The Char Dham Yatra recently began after a long time since Covid happened in the country. Looking at the inflow of the Yatris the UTDB issued an advisory.

All the pilgrimage has to go for a health examination before heading for the Char Dham Yatra and if found any disease then they have to bring Doctor’s Prescription, Doctor’s Phone number, and medications with them.

Also, the senior citizens with serious ailments or post covid complications have been advised not to take the journey due to issues like cold temperature, lack of oxygen, and humidity.

Pilgrims have been advised to travel slowly to avoid strenuous exercise and not to take plenty of fluids and diet to accommodate the weather conditions.

If someone experiences any kind of illness, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, weakness, rapid growth, and increased heart rate then they should consult the nearest medical facility.

The Yatris will be heading to Chamoli, Rudraprayag, Uttarkashi, Tehri, Haridwar, and Pauri – so the Chief Medical Officers have been advised to make life-saving drugs available on the crowded stretches. 

14 temporary medical relief posts have been set up for pilgrimage heading to Kedarnath and 19 permanent medical posts are already available for those heading to Badrinath. Also for Yamunotri, 5 First Medical Responders and a Medical Relief post have been set up.
