Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that we are all fighting a battle against Corona. It is relieving to note that now the positivity rate is continuously lowering. From 24.29 per cent on April 22 it came down to 23.01 percent on April 25. Another relief is that the number of people getting infected is almost constant now. It is constant around 13 thousand.
At the same time, the number of patients recovering and returning home has also gathering pace. On April 19, this number was 6,836, which increased to 11 thousand 324 on April 25. Our recovery rate is also increasing. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said this in a message issued from his residence to the people of the state.
Chouhan said that a long battle awaits. It is only with the cooperation of all, that positivity rate can be reduced and recovery rate can increase. The battle against Corona can only be won by staying at home. We stayed at home, so now the rate of infection is decreasing. I request all of you to continue with this cooperation. We have to keep fighting this battle with patience and tolerance.
Chouhan said that if there is an infection in some houses in a village or a neighborhood of the city, then the area will have to be turned into a micro containment area to check infection from spreading further. Arrangements should be made to cater to the needs of the families living in such micro containment areas so that they do not leave their homes. This cooperation is extremely important. Therefore, the policy of creating micro containment area is also being included in this fight.
The Chief Minister said that it is often seen that relatives come to the hospital with positive patients. This increases the risk of the family members of getting infected. If the family is also infected then who will take care of the patient. Therefore, it is requested that after the hospitalization of Corona patient, do not go to the ward at all. You will get infected by this, which will worsen the crisis. You are expected to cooperate in reducing the crisis at this time.
