Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that at the time of this Covid epidemic, everyone must forget the differences and gear up to break the chain of infection. Defeating Corona is our top priority.

In Gwalior the infection has reduced, the public curfew will remain in force till May 30 to eradicate it completely. He said that there has been a decrease in corona infection, but the battle is long. We all have to work continuously to make the state free from Corona. We all need to work together as a unit to eradicate infection. Public support will also have to be obtained in this work.
Chouhan said that it is a matter of relief that the positivity rate of our state has come down to 10.7 percent. It had reached 24 percent a few days ago. The situation is continuously improving in all the districts of Gwalior-Chambal division.
The Chief Minister said that Covid Care Centres have been set up in the districts, now we will have to be prepared to operate them as Post Covid Care Centres. Even after recovering from corona disease, some people are facing cases of diseases like black fungus, blood clotting. We will also need post covid care centres to take care of them.
Chouhan said that special efforts should be made to ensure that infection does not spread to rural areas along with urban areas. In the Kill Corona-3 campaign being run in the state, teams should reach every house in the rural areas and those who are found to be infected should be treated. He also expected the members of the District Level, Block Level and Village Level Crisis Management Committees and the people associated with them to accompany the teams going door-to-door in the Kill Corona campaign and participate in the works of medicine distribution and awareness drive.
