Before the meeting of the Council of Ministers, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in his address said that due to the tireless efforts, constant cooperation and hard work of all the Cabinet colleagues, people of the State, all Crisis Management Committees, public representatives, corona is under control. Chouhan thanked everyone for these coordinated efforts.
Chouhan said that Corona cases are becoming less frequent. Madhya Pradesh is in a position to control Corona. Today there are 2,422 positive cases while the number of persons who have recovered is 7,373. The rate of recovery is constantly increasing. The recovery rate is 92.68 percent.
On Mondat, less than 10 cases have been reported in 15 districts of the state including Agar-Malwa, Bhind, Ashoknagar, Alirajpur, Khandwa, Barwani, Burhanpur, Mandla, Jhabua, Narsinghpur, Singrauli, Niwari, Dindori, Shajapur and Tikamgarh. In Bhind and Agar Malwa only one case has been reported. If the district administration and Crisis Management Committees continue to work in this manner, Corona cases in the entire state could come down to zero by May 31. The positivity rate of 34 districts of the state has also been 5 percent or less. This is a big achievement.
Chouhan said that the future strategy to fight against Corona will be formulated only with public participation. Our endeavour is to have minimum cases of Corona. In this situation, wherever infection spreads, it can be controlled immediately. The unlock process is starting from June 1. Intensive testing will continue to be conducted throughout the state and Covid Care Centers will continue to operate. Those who are tested positive will be either subjected to home isolation or will be treatment at a Covid Care Center. Along with this, other affected people will be identified and treated as required. No corona infected will be allowed to become a super spreader.
The Chief Minister said that necessary strategy has to be made to protect the state from the third wave. Rules such as wearing masks, keeping distance, frequent hand washing and no crowding will have to be made a part of Covid friendly behaviour. This will help in controlling the rise in number of infections and Corona affected. This strategy is not possible without the help of the society.
