People’s support to corona curfew has brought Covid under control, says CM

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that there is widespread public support for preventing corona infection. Corona pandemic is gradually coming under control due to strict adherence to corona curfew. The number of newly infected cases of Corona has now come to four digits in the state.

Madhya Pradesh now ranks 15th among major states of the country in terms of Corona infection. The positivity rate has been declining and has reached below 14 per cent from 25 per cent, but we should not become careless. There is need to be more cautious now. There is a long way to go to eradicate Corona infection.

Chouhan said that Corona virus spreads less on its own. This virus spreads more due to our behaviour. If we go to weddings, crowded areas and grand celebrations, the corona infection spreads faster. Till Corona curfew is implemented with public support, no one should come out of their houses. Marriages must not be organized in the month of May. In the month of June, when Corona infection comes under control, marriages etc. can be organized at a small level.

Chouhan said that Corona infection has spread to some villages as well. The Kill Corona campaign has been launched to control it. Government staff is taking the pains to visit every house. The government staff is accompanied by political, social workers and senior citizens of the village. Chouhan said that if anyone has symptoms of Corona including cold, fever etc., one must not hide. Treatment is possible.
